As it stands now, most computer models and the official track take the storm generally to the north and then to the north-northeast, away from the USA east coast, over the weekend.

Hurricane Jose, which started off as Category 4 hurricane, has lessened to Category 2 as of the latest update on September, 11 by the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

After Irma climbed up Florida, it had slowed to a tropical depression as it dumps rain over Tennessee and the Ohio Valley, NHC reported.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Hurricane Jose is performing its loop in the Atlantic. A Category 1 hurricane packs winds between 74 miles per hour and 95 miles per hour, as gauged by the scale. Hurricane Jose now sits on the northern side of the Caribbean Islands and it might just be heading towards the Canadian coasts.

Most theme parks reopening Tuesday, but not all
However, Hurricane Irma has ripped through the Caribbean and reached Florida over the weekend, prompting the theme park to shut. Ashley was stuck in Animal Kingdom with her boyfriend, and shared the experience in a series of videos on YouTube.

As with any weather forecast, and as we have seen with Hurricane Irma, hurricane tracks and intensities can change overnight.

NASA's Terra satellite is one of many satellites keeping a close eye on Hurricane Jose and saw the storm between the Bahamas and Bermuda.

The last thing some Lowcountry residents want to think about after Hurricane Irma battered South Carolina Monday is the next storm.

However, whether the hurricane hits the Canadian shores or not will depend on the timing of the frontal boundary and the strength of the high pressure ridge, Hull explained.

For the European weather model, a recurvature out to sea or a landfall in New England or Canada were the preferred solutions.
