Meteorologist Ross Hull from the Global News says that Hurricane Jose is expected to mellow down to a Category 1 hurricane in the coming few days.

Jose's center is now located near latitude 27.6 North and longitude 67.4 West, about 480 miles north-northeast of Grand Turk Island and about 640 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

As of 11 a.m. ET, Jose had winds of 105 miles per hour, making it a Category 2 storm.

After Irma climbed up Florida, it had slowed to a tropical depression as it dumps rain over Tennessee and the Ohio Valley, NHC reported.

Long-range models suggest that the strengthening high-pressure area will then force the hurricane to move west-northwest toward the East Coast, according to the Weather Underground.

It's still way too early to know exactly where Jose will end up, but it wouldn't be a bad idea for the United States to get comfortable with another hurricane making landfall.

However, bays and canals drained by Hurricane Irma's intense storm system were exactly the threats facing Florida's aquatic wildlife over the weekend, including manatees .

Powerful Hurricane Jose continued to track northwest and away from land on Sunday while still packing winds of 130 miles per hour.

Jose is now not a threat to land. Because of the shear, it is not expected to gain much strength and may perhaps weaken a little over the next five days.

This places the entire eastern side of North America at risk, with Jose capable of making its landfall anywhere between SC, U.S. and Newfoundland, Canada.

By Monday, a ridge of high pressure will ride along the east coast.

At 5 a.m. AST/EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located near 26.1 degrees north latitude and 66.0 degrees west longitude.
