Hurricane José weakens

According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, Hurricane José has weakened to a category 2 storm and is in open water in the Atlantic Ocean. As of Monday, 11 September 2017, the storm was located at 410 kilometers to the north west of Grand Turk, with sustained winds of 165 miles per hour moving to the north-north east at 17 kilometers an hour.

It is expected to slow down and then move towards the northeast. While there is a slight possibility the hurricane may turn around and again move south, at the present time it does not present any danger to the Dominican Republic. US and European forecasts expect it to remain on the northeastern course.

The NHC also warns of the formation of a tropical wave to the west south west of the Cape Verde islands, which may develop over the next two days although it only has a 40% chance of developing into a hurricane over the next five days.
