the New Jersey coast on Wednesday.

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in the
warning area Tuesday night or early Wednesday. Tropical storm
conditions are possible in the watch area beginning on Tuesday.
SURF: Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas,
and much of the U.S. east coast. These swells are likely to cause
dangerous surf and rip current conditions for the next several
days in these areas. For more information, please consult products
from your local weather office.
RAINFALL: Jose is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
3 to 5 inches over eastern Long Island, southeast Connecticut,

Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket through Wednesday. Jose is also
expected to produce total rain accumulations up to 2 inches along
the mid-Atlantic coast, and from southeast New York to coastal
Maine. This rainfall could cause isolated flooding.
