  • National Hurricane Center

It's 445 miles east of the Bahamas and moving slowly west at 3 mph.

The center added that tropical storm watches were possible for the US east coast later Saturday and advised people from North Carolina to New England to monitor Jose's progress.

Hurricane Jose could whip up potentially risky surf conditions and exacerbate beach erosion from Hurricane Irma.

It's now a Category 1 hurricane, but it could weaken into a tropical storm by the time it reaches the waters off New England. The atmosphere is always changing and this will affect the paths and intensity of these two waves should they develop.Both systems have a 70% chance of developing into a depression or tropical storm within the next five days.

A tropical storm watch may be needed for a portion of the coast of North Carolina on Saturday.

The official forecast track from the hurricane center puts Jose as a strong tropical storm Wednesday 225 miles southeast of NY.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 miles per hour (120 km/h) with higher gusts.

Hurricane Jose is northwestward and is located roughly 480 miles South Southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Another potential hurricane threat is approaching North America's Western coast, as Tropical Storm Norma is predicted to become a hurricane over the weekend before making landfall north of Cabo San Lucas on Baja California Sur in Mexico late Monday or early Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center issued a warning about possible life threatening rip currents along the East Coast on Thursday. For Jose, it should be noted, according to the hurricane center, that "there is a fair bit of spread in the global models.which does not give me a lot of confidence in the long-term track forecast". While the National Hurricane Center has taken the state of Florida out of Jose's path, it looks like he will come pretty close to the Carolinas - or to NY or New England - depending on how far west he travels.
