NWS: Heading north, Hurricane Jose brings swells, rip currents

Tropical Storm Jose sept 14 track

In the Atlantic, Hurricane Jose was moving slowly but far from land but generating powerful swells that were affecting coastal areas in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the US southeast.

Lee became the 11th named storm of the Atlantic Hurricane season Saturday but the NHC in its 11 a.m. advisory dropped the storm to a depression.

Lee is the furthest east of the storms, still closer to the Cabo Verde Islands of Africa than the Caribbean.

It was located about 810 miles southwest of Bermuda and moving northwest at 9 mph, the National Hurricane Center says.

Hurricane Jose edged closer to the US on Saturday, but forecasters were more confident that the center of the storm will stay offshore as it travels parallel to the East Coast over the next few days.

Jose re-strengthened from a tropical storm to a Category 1 hurricane this afternoon and could potentially bring Nor'easter-like conditions to NY and Boston next week.

Hurricane Jose, a category one storm, may begin affecting the East Coast as far south as North Carolina within a few days. However, hurricane and tropical storm warnings have been set in multiple islands for Tropical Storm Maria, which may turn into a hurricane later this Sunday.

After a week hovering around the Bermuda Triangle, Hurricane Jose is on the move, and may take a swipe at the NY area late Monday into early Tuesday.

Hurricane Jose is a category 1 storm with sustained winds near 80 miles per hour. A Hurricane Watch has been issued for Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Nevis, and Montserrat.

Jose's maximum sustained winds have decreased to about 85 miles per hour, the NHC said.

Maria has strengthened into a tropical storm and is heading toward Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

Tropical Storm Maria formed Saturday afternoon in the Atlantic outside the Caribbean Sea.

Tropical storm watches have be issued for portions of the Lesser Antilles. The storm is forecast to become a tropical storm again by next Tuesday.

The forecast track for Jose has it running parallel to the coastline, passing SC by Monday and continuing northeast back out toward the Atlantic past Maine.

Hurricane Jose continues its slow northward trek but remains far from land as it generates powerful swells affecting coastal areas in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the US southeast.
