Jose is now a Category 4 Hurricane.



Hurricane Jose Discussion Number 13
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL122017
1100 AM AST Fri Sep 08 2017

An Air Force Hurricane Hunter plane, the first so far into Jose,
found the hurricane was much stronger than previously estimated. A
standard 90 percent reduction of the 146-kt peak flight-level wind
at 700 mb yields an intensity estimate of about 130 kt, which is
the basis for the initial intensity. In the short term, Jose is in a
fairly favorable environment. Although the SHIPS-diagnosed shear is
near 20 kt, the hurricane is small enough that it has thus far
remained sheltered from the upper-level outflow of Hurricane Irma to
the west. Internal dynamics will therefore most likely be the
driving factor of Jose's intensity for the next day or so. After
that time, all of the intensity guidance forecasts weakening,
perhaps assuming that eventually the shear will begin to affect the
hurricane. Due to the very high initial intensity of Jose, the
intensity forecast is quite a bit higher than the model consensus,
even after adjusting for the initial intensity. However, the NHC
forecast still follows the model trend of steady weakening beyond 24
hours.

The aircraft data also indicated that the center of Jose is a
little farther south than previously estimated. Because of that,
the NHC track forecast has been shifted slightly south and west of
the previous one. Otherwise, there is no significant change to
the track forecast, and Jose is still expected to turn northwest
before reaching the Leeward Islands on Saturday, as the subtropical
ridge begins to retreat eastward. There is fairly good agreement
between the global models for the first 48 h. After that, it is
still unclear if Jose will begin to move east with an approaching
mid-latitude mid-level trough, or if it will remain trapped in
light steering flow. As a course of least regret, my forecast
splits the difference between these scenarios and shows a slow
northeastward motion at day 5.

Not much talk on Jose this week I see, but he's still hanging around and now the models show him becoming a hurricane again (perhaps major hurricane) not too far from the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast. There's been a big west trend over the last 24-36 hours with his track. Here's an image from the 06z GFS. The 00z had it making landfall on long island

Idk what the Euro is doing at the 12z but it's continuing the loop idea and has Jose approaching the OBX for a second time at the end of the run after some fujiwara interactions with TD15/Maria.

The "EU" model says Jose is going to hit New York. I know this because the description in this Youtube live stream link of the Weather Channel told me so.


But hey I appreciate the live stream!

Jose still hanging around in some form.

At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Jose
was located near latitude 39.5 North, longitude 69.4 West. The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the southwest near 2 mph (4
km/h). Jose is expected to meander off the coast of New England for
the next several days.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 45 mph (75 km/h) with
higher gusts. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles (260 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 993 mb (29.33 inches).
