“Hurricane Jose will likely pass well to our east early next week with little impact, but still bears watching,” the National Weather Service says in its forecast discussion.
AccuWeather says, “In the aftermath of Irma, all interests across the East Coast of the United States should keep a close eye on Hurricane Jose as it meanders off the Atlantic coast through next week.”
Jose is a Category 1 hurricane located about 500 miles east-northeast of the Bahamas this morning, according to AccuWeather.
Computer models aren’t yet agreeing on a clear track for Jose, according to the Weather Service.
The “general hint from the various ensembles is for Jose to remain well offshore from southern New England,” the Weather Service says. “While the risk to our region remains low at this time, it is not zero. Jose will bear watching late this week into this weekend.
“One thing we will see from Jose is an elevated risk for dangerous rip currents and rough surf into early next week along south-facing, ocean-exposed beaches. Beach- goes should use caution and heed the advice of lifeguards and posted signage,” the Weather Service said.
For this Wednesday, “warm and dry conditions” will continue, with a high of about 82 in Providence.
Clouds will increase and southwest winds will build higher humidity, according to the Weather Service. There’s a possibility of rain showers late tonight into Thursday morning.
Thursday looks partly sunny with a high near 82.
“The much weakened remnants of Irma” will move into the region Friday, bringing showers and possibly thunderstorms.
The weekend looks dry with Providence temperatures in the mid to upper 70s.
