the north-northwest near 10 mph (17 km/h), and a turn toward the

Jose is then expected to move slowly toward the east and southeast
Tuesday into Wednesday.

gusts. Steady weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

the Bahamas, and the Turks and Caicos Islands over the next couple
of days. These swells are likely to produce high surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products from your local
weather office.
