Behind Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Jose is now not expected to be a threat to the United States.

The National Hurricane Center’s discussion Saturday morning said it will be a Category 4 storm today as it nears the northern Leeward Islands, causing damage to some of the islands battered by Irma. But weather conditions should weaken it after that.

“Statistical and dynamical intensity guidance show gradual weakening of the cyclone through day 5 as a result of increasing northerly shear and drier, more stable mid-tropospheric air associated with an approaching mid-latitude trough to the northwest of the cyclone,” the NHC’s website reads.
