(KALB) - What once was Hurricane Jose, originally getting forecast advisories the day after Labor Day, Tuesday September 5, lasted overall for over 2 weeks (17 days) and its last advisory was Friday, September 22.
Jose became a hurricane on Wednesday, September 6, and then quickly strengthened to a major hurricane on Thursday, September 7, as it continued to move closer to the Caribbean Islands.
Roughly a week or so later after the first original advisory for the storm, Jose ended up stalling north of the Caribbean Islands and off the United States Eastern Seaboard, doing a 360-degree loop over a matter of days before finally moving to the north along the U.S. East Coast.
Jose became a threat to the Mid Atlantic and Northeast Coastlands with dangerous surf and rip currents for multiple days. Fortunately, Jose never made landfall but still provided coastal threats in its path.
Friday, September 22 was the final day that the National Hurricane Center issued an advisory for this tropical system as it meandered offshore of New England and dissipated.
Overall, we've seen 13 named storms and Jose was the 3rd overall major hurricane out of 4 this 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
The season ends on November 30th.
