The so-called cone of uncertainty for Tropical Storm Jose now includes North Carolina's Outer Banks after the National Hurricane Center shifted its forecast west Thursday.
Hurricane Jose, sitting out in the Atlantic on Wednesday, is expected to make a slow clockwise rotation over the next 36 to 48 hours that could bring it closer to the USA and the Bahamas.
Hurricane Jose has lost strength over the last few days and is now carrying 75 miles per hour max sustained winds.
Jose is now a tropical storm located about 400 miles east-northeast of the Bahamas.
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.
Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic
Jose is about 810 kilometres (505 miles) east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 700 kilometres (435 miles) from Bermuda.
Another path would take Jose farther to the west, bringing clouds, rain and gusty winds to part of the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts and eventually Atlantic Canada.
The cone shows the probable track of the center of a storm over a five-day period. In fact, we are just about smack dab in the middle of the peak of the typical hurricane season right now.
Some restrengthening is forecast to begin on Friday, and Jose will likely become a hurricane again by the weekend.
There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect for this storm. Two major hurricanes, Harvey and Irma, have made landfall in the United States already this season.
