HURRICANE TRACKER: Category 1 Hurricane Jose Weakens, Forecast To Not Impact US

Irma weakens officials urge patience for evacuees eager to return home

At 5 a.m. AST/EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located near 26.1 degrees north latitude and 66.0 degrees west longitude.

Hurricane Jose, which has been lingering as Irma took aim at Florida, has weakened slightly as it circles in the Atlantic Ocean, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Jose has turned east and is moving at about 5 miles per hour. It's expected to circulate around that area for the next few days before moving.

Meanwhile, as Central Floridians continue to clean up after Hurricane Irma plowed through the region Sunday night and Monday morning, the storm - now a tropical depression - is expected to move through Alabama and into Tennessee on Tuesday.

Hurricane Jose has maximum sustained winds at 75 miles per hour and is moving southeast at 7 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center, according to the National Hurricane Center.

NASA's Terra satellite is one of many satellites keeping a close eye on Hurricane Jose and saw the storm between the Bahamas and Bermuda.

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