Jose Close To Cat 5 Strength Friday Night

Hurricane Jose may not look as impressive as Hurricane Irma on a satellite image, but the storm is close to matching her strength.

Jose's winds were up to 155 miles per hour as of the Friday night update at 10 p.m. our time, just short of reaching of category 5 levels. "It is surprising that Jose is as strong as the aircraft data suggests, since the hurricane's satellite appearance has degraded a little during the last several hours," said the National Hurricane Center.

Jose will skirt by islands slammed by Hurricane Irma on Saturday before moving out over the Atlantic and possibly stalling out there as the start of the week.
