Jose set to strengthen again today
Jose was expected to strengthen into a hurricane again today after being downgraded to a tropical storm yesterday.
The system — still deemed a potential threat — was forecast to turn north tomorrow and pass to Bermuda’s west early on Monday morning.
At noon, the storm’s closest point within 72 hours was forecast to be 377 nautical miles to the west at 4am on Monday.
But the BWS warned that the storm may move closer after this time.
The Bermuda Weather Service said: “Jose is expected to become a hurricane again by this evening, then turn northward tomorrow.
“This system is now passing slightly further away to the west than in yesterday morning’s forecast but remains a potential threat to Bermuda.”
Jose was 423 nautical miles to the south-southwest of Bermuda at noon and heading west-northwest at 9mph with maximum sustained winds near 70mph.
Meanwhile, Tropical Depression 14 has formed in the Atlantic but the BWS said the system is not deemed a threat “at this time”.
