Hurricane Jose to turn a half-loop in Atlantic
Sally Griffin | Saturday, September 16, 2017
Hurricane Jose lost some of his power on Thursday, and forecasts indicate the effect on Pennsylvania will be minimal at best.
As of the 5 a.m. EDT advisory (9/14/17), Jose is a Category 1 hurricane with sustained winds of 75 miles per hour. Now its a weaker system but it still could have some affects on the east coast of the United States. Jose will then lift to the northeast and hopefully out into the Atlantic by the middle and end of next week.
In addition to bringing higher surf to the North Carolina coast later this weekend and early next week, it will also bring a higher risk of rip currents.
