Jose to pass the Outer Banks; Maria a potential problem

  • Tropical Storm Maria has formed in the Atlantic

Tropical storm Maria formed in the Atlantic ocean near the coast of South America and the Caribbean, according to the Center for prevention of storms USA.

Maria is expected to gain strength through the weekend and become a hurricane by late Monday, forecasters said. By early next week, Maria is expected to affect portions of the Leeward Islands as a stronger system.

Jose is still far from land but is generating swells that the center said were affecting coastal areas in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the USA southeast.

The Category 1 storm is expected to move north through Tuesday morning, where it will sit off the mid-Atlantic coast and continue to churn local surf and heighten the risk of unsafe rip currents.

Hurricane Jose is moving northward, producing large swells and contributing to rip current risks along the southeast coast.

WhileJoseis projected to weaken and veer away from any direct impact on the coast, the Hurricane Center said a minor shift could bring tropical-storm-force winds to North Carolina's Outer Banks or areas to the north.

Jose's winds increased to 90 miles per hour, the hurricane center said.

A system about 755 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles was expected to become a tropical storm Saturday as it heads west at a quick 22 mph.

The main impacts will be rising seas, rough surf, rip current risk starting as early as this weekend, gusty winds, and tropical-like rain bands with an onshore wind with gusts near 40 to 60 miles per hour.

About a week ago, Jose was a Cateogry 4 hurricane with winds of more than 150 miles per hour, but it weakened as it meandered in the Atlantic, doing a loop-the-loop before heading toward the U.S.

Jose is expected to remain a hurricane through Tuesday.

Americans living along the US East between North Carolina and New England have been told to "monitor the progress" of Hurricane Jose in the coming days.

Maria is expected to continue moving in a west to west-northwesterly direction over the next several days and steady strengthening is anticipated. Its predicted path shows it could brush New England.
