Up next: Hurricane Jose and where it's headed

It's about 510 miles east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 470 miles south of Bermuda, moving toward the southeast at 7 mph.

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.

In its 11 a.m. advisory, the NHC said the center of the storm was located about 450 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island and 645 miles north-northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico, with wind speeds of 75 mph.

National Hurricane Center forecaster Jack Beven said that Jose continues to be affected by 20-25 knots of northerly vertical wind shear, and a recent overpass from the GMI instrument aboard NASA/JAXA's Global Precipitation Measurement mission core satellite shows that the low-level center is at the northern edge of the large area of thunderstorms.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Hurricane Jose continues moving slowly eastward with little change in strength.

Models show a wide range of possibilities, all the way from SC to Newfoundland, or even out to sea. A few other models put the storm on a more northward track closer to a North Carolina, Virginia or Maryland landfall late next week. It lost a lot of its punch from earlier Tuesday and was as high as a Category 4 storm with winds around 155 miles per hour.

For the European weather model, a recurvature out to sea or a landfall in New England or Canada were the preferred solutions.

Any potential direct hit from Jose wouldn't be until next week, however.
