Here’s a look at the National Hurricane Center’s (NHC) Atlantic tropical weather outlook for the next few days. The Virginia Water Central News Grouper posts these outlooks approximately weekly (depending on the level of weather activity) during the Atlantic tropical storm season (June 1-November 30).
As of September 12, 2017, the center of Hurricane Jose was located northeast of the Bahama Islands and was predicted to stay in that region of the Atlantic through at least Saturday, Sept. 16. At the same time, a pre-tropical disturbance Atlantic Ocean about midway between Africa and South America was being given by the NHC a 10-percent chance of tropical cyclone formation within 48 hours as well as a 10-percent chance within five days. Shown below are a satellite image of Hurricane Jose as of 3:15 p.m. EDT on September 12, accessed at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Web site at http://www.goes.noaa.gov/browsh.html; and the NHC’s two-day and five-day graphical tropical weather outlooks as of 2 p.m. EDT on September 12, accessed at http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/.
