Jose is 450 miles north-northeast from Grand Turk Island and 645 miles north-northwest from San Juan, Puerto Rico, according to the 11 a.m. advisory from the hurricane center.

Once a major Category 4 hurricane following in the path of its bigger sister, Irma, Jose is now a Category 2 storm with winds of 105 miles per hour.

The hurricane is holding on as a minimal hurricane of about 75 miles per hour as of the 11 a.m. Because of the shear, it is not expected to gain much strength and may perhaps weaken a little over the next five days.

However, Irma is expected to fizzle out over land while Hurricane Jose will make a loop before moving west again. However Jose is now forecast to simply make a northern turn and then loop back around to the south and then east again - with the east coast dead in its cross hairs. The National Hurricane Center thinks Jose will still be hurricane by Friday, however.

"There's no high-pressure system in the Atlantic at the moment like the one that pushed Irma toward the Bahamas", Live 5 Meteorologist Stephanie Sine said. The furthermore path of Jose at present is uncertain and it is still being monitored whether Hurricane Jose will pose any major threat to the East Coast of the United States.

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.

"It has the potential to completely miss the east coast", she said.

So no one is taking their eye off Jose and its path, yet.
