Hurricane Jose to weaken offshore but still bring wind, rain, surf to US East Coast

Written by on September 18, 2017 in Summer 2017, Tropical, United States of America with 0 Comments


Hurricane Jose is barely a hurricane and isn’t looking healthy with most of the convection and energy on the northern side as seen in the latest infrared loop.

While Jose will weaken and won’t directly impact the United States, it will bring wet and windy conditions up and down the East Coast with greatest impacts expected around Providence, Boston and southern New England.

Jose is expected to make it’s closest approach to New England Wednesday and so expect the worst conditions over Cape Cod during Wednesday.

Tropical Storm watches and warnings are in place.


This will be a big wave maker and so watch for them as well as rip currents.


Substantial flooding rainfall expected.


Interestingly Jose is expected to take another loop and following the second loop, it quickly fades and eventually fills late weekend into early next week perhaps getting picked up by another system or the jet.

Note the remnants of Jose wile Maria is seen approaching the Carolina coast and a major hurricane.
