Irma Jose Weekend Forecast
Irma Jose Weekend Forecast
The remnant circulation of Irma is now spinning up into the Northeast and this is going to produce a warm and humid day with the threat for some downpours or possibly a thunderstorm. We actually had a little arm of showers move through yesterday afternoon well ahead of upper feature that was Hurricane Irma. Warm humid conditions will rule Thursday. Some breaks of sun are possible and then some downpours and thunderstorms will be running around especially this afternoon and evening. It won’t be a big deal as everything in the atmosphere seems to be moving along. Temperatures today will reach the upper 70s and lower 80s.
We are already seeing some showers running around this morning and moving northeastward though they are scattered in nature.
LOCAL RADAR NEW YORK CITY
Weather conditions will begin to improve on Friday with clouds and some sunshine and perhaps one or two more stray showers with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. The weekend looks good with warm conditions and sunshine both Saturday and Sunday with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. It might be a good beach weekend and it could also be the last one so take advantage.
HURRICANE JOSE INCHING WESTWARD
MINIMAL HURRICANE STRENGTH
There hasn’t been too much change in Hurricane Jose overnight as it moves toward the west. Jose is no threat to land through the weekend however it is producing rough surf up and down the East Coast and will continue to do so through much of next week. We will evaluate the impact of Jose on our weather later this morning as we look at where models are taking us with this. At least for now all of the hurricane track models show an out to sea solution though the pass will be relatively clouds. It should be noted that Jose may start to look more like a non tropical system as it moves northward which means that the rain shield will expand some to the west as will the wind field. We probably won’t know for sure about Jose until over the weekend.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
SURF: Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas,
the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the Southeast
coast of the United States, and will spread northward along the
Mid-Atlantic coast of the U.S. during the next few days. These
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions. For more information, please consult products from your
local weather office.
