From there, it’s possible that Jose will continue moving north northeast, perhaps making landfall in Halifax.
Savannah, Ga. (WJCL)- Tonight weak high pressure will remain over land while Hurricane Jose passes north well off shore. High surf and rip currents are also likely.
Tropical storm warnings were in effect from Woods Hole, Mass., to Sagamore Beach, Mass. – which includes Cape Cod – and Block Island, R.I.; Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.; and Nantucket, Mass. And forecasters say that by tomorrow, it should be nothing more than a remnant low. The Category 1 storm is expected to gradually weaken over the next couple days, the National Hurricane Center said.
Two people were rescued from the water off Bradley Beach on Sunday, the Coast Guard said. Before the storm, make sure all electronic devices are charged up. ALL mariners should be heading back to port and securing their boats for this storm.
Hurricane Jose is now a Category 1 storm and he appears to be moving further west with just about every new GFS and European model update.
The latest GFS models for Hurricane Jose bring him a bit closer to MA. Interests along the coast are advised to monitor Jose’s progress. It is unlikely that winds will top 40 miles per hour in NYC and the areas to the north and west.
Let’s talk impacts with Jose. Heavy pockets of rain could lead to localized flooding in poor drainage areas.
Areas of fog to start, followed by a mix of sun and clouds with a slight breeze picking up in the afternoon.
On Monday morning, forecasts said the center of the storm should stay off shore, but minor to moderate coastal flooding is likely by mid-week.
Jose is whipping up unsafe surf and rip currents as it heads north over the Atlantic off the heavily populated Eastern Seaboard.
Through Tuesday night: Areas from the Delmarva Peninsula to Long Island and southern New England may be affected by gusty winds and bands of rain. Tropical-storm-force winds are most possible on Nantucket Island, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod and coastal Rhode Island. This will keep the conditons breezy and continue the high risk for rip currents all week long.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Maria in the Caribbean maintains a projection to turn north as is predicted to be over ocean waters east of Georgia by Monday.
