But, Jose is expected to strengthen slightly by late in the week to 80 miles per hour - still a Category 1 hurricane. Its minimum central barometric pressure is 28.59 inches.

Hurricane Jose is now expected to make a full and complete circle, ultimately redirecting its movement toward the west and closer to the US east coast. It's forecast to turn again sometime early Wednesday, Sept. 13, towards the southwest.

"At This point in time we don't want to put anything out there that Jose is headed to The Bahamas, it is irresponsible at this time", Mr. Simmons said.

Remains of the storm could also push the jetstream further north dragging better weather to the British Isles, but the forecast is still questionable. The NHC expects a full six days of movement, with Hurricane Jose already 300 miles away from its current location.

WEATHER forecasters said yesterday Hurricane Jose does not now pose an imminent threat to The Bahamas.

Any potential direct hit from Jose wouldn't be until next week, however. Whether it impacts our forecast is still uncertain.

Meteorologist Eleanor Bell, of The Weather Channel, said: "Models are continuing to struggle to resolve the track of this storm".

"Even with such a complex track expected to evolve, there is good agreement amongst most of the model guidance", the National Hurricane Center said in a forecast discussion. "Later this week and over the weekend, the hurricane is expected to move northwestward toward the east coast of the United States". Irma, now a tropical depression, was expected to bring clouds to the East Coast by late this week. There will still be enough moisture for scattered showers, but it will in no way be a washout or bring a flash flood threat to the area.
