NASSAU, Bahamas (UPI) — Hurricane Jose, which was downgraded to a Category 2 storm Monday morning, is expected to continue weakening over the next couple of days as it lingers in the Atlantic Ocean east of the Bahamas, the National Hurricane Center said.
In its 5 p.m. advisory, the NHC said the center of the storm was located about 360 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island with wind speeds of 100 mph. It was moving north at 12 mph.
“A turn toward the northeast is expected tonight, followed by a slower motion toward the southeast Tuesday and Tuesday night,” the NHC said.
No coastal watches or warnings were in effect, though parts of the Hispanola, the Bahamas, and the Turks and Caicos Islands should expect surf swells, which could produce dangerous surf and rip current conditions.
Jose is the 10th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, and its third major hurricane — which are classified Category 3 or higher.
