Still a chance for Jose to get close to the US

Hurricane Jose, a pale followup to Category 5 Irma, could churn up North Carolina's coast with tropical-force winds and unsafe surf by this weekend, forecasters said.

Hurricane Jose is performing its loop in the Atlantic.

In any case, forecasters said the shear environment will keep the hurricane relatively weak, with maximum expected winds of 80 miles per hour throughout the next few days.

As of 10 a.m., Jose was 435 miles northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 520 miles southwest of Bermuda. It is forecast to eventually move west-northwest by late Thursday.

Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort swept up in Hurricane Irma evacuation
Others familiar with the storm's effects at Mar-a-Lago, including Trump employees, remember it differently. All three of Trump's golf clubs have been closed , according to NBC's Hallie Jackson.

Now, as steering currents in the Atlantic remain weak, Jose has encountered wind shear in the atmosphere, weakening it into a tropical storm.

Swells produced by Jose may impact the East Coast over the next few days.

Hurricane Max has formed off the coast of southern Mexico and is forecast to hit southwestern Mexico later on Thursday, according to 7 a.m. update from the U.S. National Hurricane Center. The swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and risky rip currents.

However, there is still plenty of uncertainty with the track of Jose, as we've seen with Irma over the last week, so we will continue to give the latest updates daily on the air, online and on our NBC Boston/necn apps.
