MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Hurricane Jose continues to slowly stall over the western Atlantic Ocean with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph. The 5:00am ET advisory has the storm moving SE at 8 mph with hurricane intensity expected to continue (at category 1 strength) through Friday.

The storm is expected to turn southwest, then northwest, and northeast. This will mean Jose makes a loop of a path before likely being carried out to sea. Bermuda and the northeastern U.S. may see indirect impacts from the circulation of the storm. It may bring higher rip current hazards and/or coastal flood concerns for those areas. 

Direct threats to the U.S. don't appear likely AT THIS TIME, but if things change, updates will be provided.

You can catch the forecast on ABC 27 News starting at 5:00 each morning, as well as ABC 27 News at Noon. Chief Meteorologist Casanova Nurse has your forecast at 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, and 11:00 this evening.

Plus, you can get the First Alert forecast every 10 minutes on Channel 27.3 Weather NOW.
