NASA's Terra satellite is one of many satellites keeping a close eye on Hurricane Jose and saw the storm between the Bahamas and Bermuda.

Hurricane Jose became the tenth named storm of the season on September 5, and it quickly and quietly developed into a category four hurricane with sustained winds at 155 miles per hour at its peak on September 8.

"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 USA and Canada", said Ross Hull.

On Tuesday, the hurricane had weakened as it turned eastward.

As it stands now, most computer models and the official track take the storm generally to the north and then to the north-northeast, away from the US east coast, over the weekend.

The hurricane center's forecast track shows Jose making a slow loop in the Atlantic through the next five days. The storm is now moving in a northeastward direction.

Jose is now not a threat to land.

Fortunately, over the weekend, Jose only brushed the islands of the Caribbean that had been slammed by Irma, such as Barbuda, Antigua and the Virgin Islands.

Based on information from the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Jose will make a looping path in the western Atlantic Ocean this week, generating high surf and rip currents that will affect parts of the U.S. East Coast and the northeast Caribbean. Of 20 runs of the GFS model ensemble forecast Monday morning, 25% resulted in an eventual landfall in the US, and another 25% in Canada.
