moving toward the west-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h).  A gradual

gusts.  Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours,
and Jose is expected to regain hurricane status on Friday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)
from the center.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

SURF:  Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas,
the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the Southeast
coast of the United States, and will spread northward along the
Mid-Atlantic coast of the U.S. during the next few days.  These
swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current
conditions.  For more information, please consult products from your
local weather office.
