NWS: Low chance Hurricane Jose will bring heavy wind, rain to LI

While the center of the storm may stay out to sea, New England will likely feel some impacts from Jose.

"Much of our area is now in the 5 day cone of uncertainty", the NWS in NY wrote in a tweet Friday.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts that environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development, and a tropical depression is likely to form early next week.

The storm was moving west-northwest at 8 miles per hour.

Life-threatening rip currents are possible along portions of the US east cost from Jose, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Jose should move past the North Carolina coast early Monday through Tuesday, Zouzias said.

It's way too soon to tell what impacts the storm will have, but early models suggest the storm will turn to the north and remain offshore.

Tropical storm Jose has strengthened again into a category-1 hurricane as it is moving toward northeastern United States, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Friday. It's forecasted to become a Tropical Depression by Wednesday morning and then a low pressure by Thursday morning. Where the storm will go from there is hard to predict, but some models suggest it will regain some strength as it moves west-northwest toward the United States beginning Thursday. As of 8 a.m., the winds were sustained at 35 miles per hour.

On Sept. 15, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. EDT (1330 UTC), NOAA's GOES East satellite captured a visible image of the Tropical Storm Jose northwest of the Bahamas. The weather service office in Binghamton said that while the latest computer model projections "bring Jose closer to the New England coast during this period, (we) still expect the majority of the area to be unaffected".

Meanwhile, the hurricane center now says a wave about 1,200 miles from the eastern-most Caribbean islands has a 90 percent chance of becoming a tropical storm by midweek.
