Hurricane Jose strengthens slightly 500 miles south of Bermuda: NHC

Tropical Storm Jose sept 14 track

A depression in the Caribbean was elevated on Saturday to Tropical Storm Maria and had winds of 65 miles per hour on Sunday.

In a 5 p.m.

Surf will build to 5-9 feet, and risky rip currents are likely because of Jose. These waves will be risky to anyone who enters the surf. A surf advisory has been issued for the weekend, with especially unsafe conditions around high tide.

Your First Alert Weather Team continues to monitor Hurricanes Jose and Maria in the Atlantic Ocean. The main threat will probably be coastal flooding because its arrival will coincide with the new moon, when tides are at their highest, said Dave Samuel, a meteorologist with AccuWeather State College, Pennsylvania. We could be dealing with Jose through the end of next week!

The system became much better organized Saturday afternoon, forecasters said, as it moved over warm tropical waters and encountered light wind shear.

This includes the coast from DE north to the Cape and islands in MA. Jose isn't expected to make landfall as a Hurricane, but is still slated to bring about life threatening rip currents along the east coast along with a heavy downpour for the Northeastern United States.

National Hurricane Center in Miami said the warning was in effect for an area stretching from Watch Hill, Rhode Island, to Hull, Massachusetts. "They are going to have a direct hit from a hurricane". Some fluctuations in intensity are possible over the next couple of days, but Jose is forecast to remain a hurricane through early Tuesday.

On top of that, Jose could bring as much as 5 inches of rain across eastern Long Island into Rhode Island and MA.

Depending upon how far west the storm travels will affect the amount of rain in the mountains.

The weather service pointed to average hurricane center track errors for forecasts three to four days out, which are about 125 and 175 miles, respectively.

Tropical storm conditions could remain into Wednesday.

Most of southern New England, especially those at the coast, are under the cone of uncertainty released by the NHC. The NOAA's National Weather Service describes the Bermuda High as a "A semi-permanent, subtropical area of high pressure in the North Atlantic Ocean off the East Coast of North America that migrates east and west with varying central pressure". Maria is the seventh hurricane of the 2017 hurricane season. Maria strengthened to a category 3 storm Monday morning and is headed for the Caribbean. Maria may become a Major Hurricane, impacting Puerto Rico, by the middle of next week.
