DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
At 800 PM EDT (0000 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located
near latitude 34.8 North, longitude 71.5 West. Jose has been nearly
stationary during the past few hours, but it should resume a motion
toward the north near 10 mph (17 km/h) later tonight or Tuesday. A
turn to the northeast is expected to occur on Tuesday night. On the
forecast track, the center of Jose is forecast to pass well offshore
of the Delmarva peninsula early Tuesday, and pass well to the east
of the New Jersey coast on Wednesday.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher
gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230
miles (370 km).
The minimum central pressure recently reported by an Air Force
Reconnaissance plane was 973 mb (28.73 inches).
HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to begin in the
warning area early Wednesday. Tropical storm conditions are
possible in the watch area beginning Tuesday night.
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,
southern Rhode Island, and southeast Massachusetts, including
Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket through Wednesday. This rainfall
could cause isolated flooding. Jose is also expected to produce
total rain accumulations up to 1 inch along the mid-Atlantic coast,
and from southeast New York to coastal Maine.
