The Lowcountry's next big question: 'What about Hurricane Jose?'

Adjust Comment Print

As it stands now, most computer models and the official track take the storm generally to the north and then to the north-northeast, away from the US east coast, over the weekend.

Hurricane Jose was in the Atlantic Tuesday morning.

Hurricane Jose is heading east at 5 mph about 450 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island, as of the 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center. It's a category 1 hurricane with winds of 75 miles per hour and, because of wind shear, may weaken to a tropical storm later Tuesday.

While track models are coming into better agreement on Jose's path, "there still remains a significant spread", among a few of the forecasts. On the five-day track (see the latest), Jose is expected to remain in the Atlantic through Sunday. The National Hurricane Center thinks Jose will still be hurricane by Friday, however.

This dispute has fans of the game accusing the developer Bungie of overstepping their boundaries and giving in to corporate greed. Even aside from that, though, I found it hard to care about any characters in the world, and I could barely keep names straight.

Both storms followed a similar path, moving west across the Atlantic before making a sharp turn to the north. Hurricane Jose now sits on the northern side of the Caribbean Islands and it might just be heading towards the Canadian coasts.

Of course, forecast models can change; Irma was definitely proof of that, with models originally pointing at a landfall as far north as North Carolina before consistently shifting west to a landfall on the west coast of Florida at Marco Island Sunday afternoon.

Nash County dodged a bullet this week when Hurricane Irma took a more westerly path, but don't start eating all of your emergency food supply just yet.
