(RNN) - Round and round it goes. Where it stops, nobody knows.

As people in Florida, the Caribbean and the South cope with the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, another hurricane is spinning in the Atlantic, and forecasters aren't certain if it will impact the U.S.

Hurricane Jose is heading southeast at 9 mph about 495 miles northeast of the Bahamas and 410 miles south-southwest of Bermuda, as of an 11 p.m. ET advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

Jose is no Irma, however. It's a Category 1 hurricane with winds of 75 mph and, because of wind shear, may weaken to a tropical storm later Tuesday.

Forecasters said the hurricane will loop back around and head west-northwestward by the end of the week, influenced by the development and movement of a mid-level ridge.

The forecast after that is less certain, with some models suggesting the storm will loop toward the north and northeast and other models having it move west toward the Bahamas.

In any case, forecasters said the shear environment will keep the hurricane relatively weak, with maximum expected winds of 80 mph throughout the next few days.

Because Hurricane Jose is so far from land, the National Hurricane Center has issued no watches or warnings yet.
