(RNN) - Hurricane Jose is performing its loop in the Atlantic.

It's too early to tell whether Jose will affect the U.S. coast next week.

The hurricane is holding on as a minimal hurricane of about 75 mph as of the 5 p.m. ET National Hurricane Center advisory. It's about 500 miles east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and 485 miles south of Bermuda, moving toward the southeast at 7 mph.

Over the next three days, the hurricane is supposed to turn slowly clockwise toward the west-northwest, forecasters said, as a trough to the northeast leaves and subtropical ridge builds in the northwest, north and eventually northeast. 

Beyond the maneuver, forecasters don't agree on where Jose will eventually go in the Atlantic, with the current National Hurricane forecast calling for it to move to the north-northeast by the beginning of next week.

Affected by wind shear, the hurricane is being described as "a rather shapeless mass of intense convection." Because of the shear, it is not expected to gain much strength and may perhaps weaken a little over the next five days.

Jose is currently not a threat to land.
