NASA sees Hurricane Jose off the USA east coast

NASA sees Hurricane Jose off the USA east coast

Forecast track for Hurricane Jose, as of 5 a.m. Sunday morning.

The storm that immediately followed Irma, Hurricane Jose, is expected to cause trouble along the U.S. East Coast later this week - anywhere from DE to MA, forecasters said Monday.

Jose is moving toward the north near 9 miles per hour (15 kph) and this general motion is expected to continue during the next day or so.

"The whole area may feel effects of Jose but the exact impact varies greatly from neighborhood to neighborhood", meteorologist Krystal Klei says.

Thursday: Sunny. Highs in the lower 80s.

The storm is expected to impact the state's southern coast starting Tuesday and lasting into Wednesday.

Leaders in both communities will keep up on the latest developments with Jose through the night and gather again tomorrow to determine what, if any, additional steps to take. We may see some breaks in the clouds later in the day.

A weak cold front moving in from the west on Wednesday is likely to draw some rain or showers up from Jose into Nova Scotia. However, as noted above, tropical storm winds extend outward from the storm center for up to 230 miles. The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency said the impacts are expected to be "consistent with a strong nor'easter", and will include "high surf and rip currents, minor to moderate coastal flooding, and significant beach erosion". That means Jose will not score a direct hit on New England. Several models are suggesting that, instead of rapidly kicking out to sea, the storm will "linger" well off-shore for the second half of the week.

Lee fell apart overnight and is no longer a named storm. That's in quote mark because the sun really doesn't burn away the fog, it actually heats the ground to create a big enough spread between the temperature and dew point to lower the relative humidity, lifting or dissipating the fog. Our beach towns are feeling it the most.

The National Hurricane Center's 5AM update is out and Jose is still a hurricane with winds of 75mph.

The Miami-based hurricane center says Maria is expected to move across the Leeward Islands late Monday.

Normally, when a hurricane or tropical storm gets this far north they get caught up in the westerlies and get dragged out to the middle of the Atlantic. This is not good news!

In the tropics, Jose is still expected to bring Cape Cod the wettest and windiest weather as it turns northeast and spins over the offshore waters through the end of the week.
