Will Hurricane Jose have any impact in north Georgia?

ATLANTA - We just had Irma. Before that was Harvey. And now, we know a lot of you are worried about what could be next.

“Hurricane Jose is just spinning right now between Bermuda and the Bahamas,” Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan said.

Jose, currently a Category 1 Hurricane, has winds of 75 mph and gusts of 90 mph. It’s moving east at 5 mph.

“All of the forecast models we’re looking at right now say this is no threat to north Georgia,” Monahan said. “It perhaps gets close to the Carolinas. But for north Georgia, this is a system we’ll watch that looks like it’s staying well to our east.”

You can count on Severe Weather Team 2 to track this storm over the next several days as it makes its way closer to the east coast.

Monahan expects more clouds than sunshine on Wednesday.

“There’s a slight chance for a few showers, especially north,” he said.

Temperatures are expected to recover into the mid-70s.

“As we move into the end of the week, the remnants of Irma will push by to our east, removing the unsettled weather threat,” Monahan said.

Severe Weather Team 2 expects it to be partly cloudy on Thursday and Friday with highs in the low to a few mid-80s.

“Over the weekend, expect mainly dry and partly cloudy weather with highs again in the mid-80s,” Monahan said.
