Up next: Hurricane Jose and where it's headed

Caicos after Irma

Hurricane Jose is continuing to weaken as it takes a clockwise loop in the Atlantic Ocean.

Deputy Director at The Bahamas Department of Meteorology Jeffery Simmons speaking with The Bahama Journal said it too early to predict the storm's exact path but The Bahamas should be in the clear.

Hurricane Jose, which is taking more of a northerly track, Hurricane Katia, which slammed into Mexico's east coast, and of course Hurricane Irma which made its US landfall in Florida.

As Hurricane Irma dissipates into a tropical depression, forecasters are keeping an eye on yet another storm: Hurricane Jose.

According to the National Hurricane Center on Monday, Jose is now a category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained wind of 105 miles per hour.

However, most computer models indicate Jose will stay out to sea and complete a tight enough loop to avoid moving onshore.

Jose was packing 85 m.p.h. winds - a category one storm - and was expected to remain a category one storm when it inches closer to land.

The track for Hurricane Jose is a odd one.

Jose is now located about 400 miles north of the northern Leeward Islands and is moving northwest.

That's according to the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami which said this morning that "some slight weakening is forecast, and Jose could become a tropical storm by tonight".

Have a family discussion about what you will do, where you will go and how you will communicate with each other when a storm threatens.

Spaghetti charts for Jose show a complicated future for the storm. "Later this week and over the weekend, the hurricane is expected to move northwestward toward the east coast of the United States". We'll have to wait and see what's in store as we move past the peak of the hurricane season.
