Rain, wind expected Tuesday as Jose approaches

The potential for danger is even greater in the Caribbean.

Jose is expected to weaken to a tropical storm by early Wednesday.

Maria is following the same path as Irma. This area saw a lot of damage from Hurricane Irma.

Irma killed at least 60 people in the Caribbean and at least nine more when it struck the USA state of Florida.

Hurricane Jose, a Category 1 storm, is forecast to bring tropical-storm conditions along the East Coast of the United States, the National Hurricane Center said Sunday.

The tropical storm Maria, which formed on Saturday in the Atlantic Ocean, has developed into a Category 1 hurricane with the Caribbean islands put on alert, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in a statement.

Now moving roughly 1115 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands, Tropical Depression Lee is moving west-northwest at 8 mph.

Hurricane-force winds now extend up to 60 miles and tropical-storm-force winds are outward to 205 miles.

The Meteorological Service of St. Maarten has also issued a tropical storm warning.

A tropical storm watch is in effect for the coast of Long Island, New York, from Fire Island Inlet to Port Jefferson.

Jose is one of two hurricanes in the Atlantic on Tuesday. Minor flooding is expected during Tuesday morning's high tide and moderate flooding is anticipated during the evening.

Maria is expected to gain strength through the weekend and become a hurricane by late Monday, bringing unsafe wind, storm surge and rainfall hazards, the National Hurricane Center said. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect from DE to MA.

Maria is expected to continue northwest throughout the week, passing over Puerto Rico and close to the shore of the Dominican Republic.

Officials said in addition to the East Coast, Bermuda and the Bahamas may also be affected by Jose's risky swells. It has maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour and is moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

Interests elsewhere in the Lesser Antilles, including the British and U. S. Virgin Islands, as well as Puerto Rico should monitor the progress of this system.
