Hurricane Jose moving slowly as Category 1 storm

A local meteorologist has sought to allay the fears of residents of a possible "double hit" after global experts revealed that Hurricane Jose is expected to make a loop that will affect parts of the Caribbean.

The hurricane is holding on as a minimal hurricane of about 75 miles per hour as of the 11 a.m.

National Hurricane Center (NHC) latest forecast for Hurricane Jose has the Category 1 storm turning northeast back into the Atlantic over the next five days.

The future path of Jose after it makes its stalling loop in the western Atlantic remains uncertain, but we will continue to monitor it for any potential USA impact. It's about 510 miles east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 470 miles south of Bermuda, moving toward the southeast at 7 mph.

Meanwhile, the remains of Hurricane Irma are nothing more than a tropical depression as it continues to weaken over land.

Affected by wind shear, the hurricane is being described as "a rather shapeless mass of intense convection".

Jose's unusual spin is because of weak steering currents that are letting it be jostled around by a large deep-layer trough to the northeast.
