Hurricane Jose threatens the US

(Worthy News) – Another hurricane is moving in the direction of the mainland U.S. as the remnants of Hurricane Irma continue to sweep through the Southeast.

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center on Monday shows Hurricane Jose, a Category 2 storm, making a clockwise loop in the Atlantic before heading northwest in the direction of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. By late Friday or early Saturday the center of the storm might skirt by the Bahamas.

Though boasting 100 miles-per-hour sustained wind speeds, forecasters expect wind sheer, or the change in wind speed and direction with height, to weaken the storm over the next couple of days, other factors will help it retain hurricane strength. “The storm will remain over warm water for the next several days, and this should allow it to maintain a robust circulation,” said AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski.
