SITUATION OVERVIEW
------------------

Tropical Storm Jose will continue to track slowly northeast,
passing to the southeast of the area. 

The main hazard will be coastal flooding with 1 to 2 feet of
inundation expected during the times of high tide this morning.

Dangerous surf of 8 to 10 feet is expected today. This will result in
widespread dune erosion and washovers.

Tropical Storm Force winds will continue over the ocean waters east of
Fire Island Inlet.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS
-----------------

* SHORELINE HAZARDS:
Prepare for dangerous surf of 8 to 10 ft causing widespread dune 
erosion, and localized dune overwashes along the Atlantic beachfront.

* SURGE:
Prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts 
across Suffolk County. Potential impacts in this area 
include:
    - Localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along 
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots, or in areas 
      farther inland near where higher surge waters move ashore.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread 
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where 
      surge water covers the road.
    - Moderate beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly 
      in usually vulnerable locations. Strong and frequent rip 
      currents.
    - Minor to locally moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, 
      and piers. A few small craft broken away from moorings.

* WIND:
Little to no additional impacts are anticipated at this time 
across Southeast New York, Northeast New Jersey, and Southern 
Connecticut.
