DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Jose was located near
latitude 16.1 North, longitude 56.2 West.  Jose is moving toward the
west-northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h).  A slower west-northwestward
motion is expected during the next couple of days.  On the forecast
track, Jose is expected to be near the northern Leeward Islands on
Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 125 mph (200 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Jose is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale.  Some slight strengthening is possible later
today or tonight.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115
miles (185 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 957 mb (28.25 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch
area on Saturday, and tropical storm conditions are expected within
the tropical storm warning areas by Saturday morning. Tropical storm
conditions are possible in the tropical storm watch areas by
Saturday morning.

RAINFALL:  Jose is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
2 to 6 inches in the Leeward Islands from Dominica to Anguilla.
Isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches are possible in the northern
Leeward Islands from Antigua and Barbuda to Anguilla. This rainfall
will maintain any ongoing flooding and may cause additional life-
threatening flooding.

SURF:  Swells generated by Jose are expected to affect portions of
the Leeward Islands by later today.  These swells are likely to
cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please
consult products from your local weather office.
