Jose, which has currently lessened from a Category 4 to a Category 2 hurricane, was called a “messy looking hurricane” but the U.S.’s National Hurricane Center latest update as of Sept. 11.
Global News meteorologist Ross Hull says it’s expected to weaken to a Category 1 over the next few days.
Currently, it’s spinning out in the Atlantic, away from land masses.
Hurricane Jose is currently travelling in a clockwise circle, but could go north later in the week.
It is currently going in a circle, but is expected to come up the coast and could make landfall anywhere from the Carolina’s all the way to Newfoundland.
The timing of a frontal boundary (a separation of air with different densities) along with the strength of a ridge of high pressure will determine whether or not it will hit Canada, Hull explained.
Spaghetti plot for Hurricane Jose as of Sept. 11, 5 p.m.
Parts of Eastern Canada including Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada could feel Jose’s effects by next week.
“It’s important to emphasize that there is a still a lot of computer model uncertainty on Jose’s next move but it still is a storm to watch for the U.S. and Canada,” he said.
