Hurricane Jose to begin weakening on Wednesday - NHC

The eye of the storm should pass by the New Jersey coast from Tuesday night through Wednesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Hurricane Jose has maximum sustained winds at 75 miles per hour and is moving north at 9 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Forecasters said Jose should maintain its strength Tuesday but weaken Wednesday.

While it's not yet clear if Hurricane Jose will make landfall in the United States, it's still expected to cause flooding and bring torrential rain to the East Coast.

Tropical storm warnings were in effect from Woods Hole, Mass., to Sagamore Beach, Mass.; Block Island, R.I.; Martha's Vineyard, Mass.; and Nantucket, Mass.

This past weekend, NY residents, particularly those living in Long Island, were warned from heading to the beach owing to the risk of rip currents, according to Gothamist.

"The combination of high seas and strong winds will result in life-threatening conditions", the weather service said. In addition, tropical-storm-force winds could extend to North Carolina's Outer Banks on Monday, the National Hurricane Center said.
