2-Category 5 Hurricanes Now In The Atlantic

Hurricane Jose is growing more powerful and nearing Category 5 strength.

Jose is moving west-northwest near 17 mph. A turn toward the northwest with a decrease in speed is expected Friday night and through the weekend. The core of Jose will pass close or just east of the northern Leeward Islands.

Maximum sustained winds are near 150 mph with higher gusts. Some fluctuation in intensity, up or down, could occur over the weekend. Gradual weakening is expected after that.
