Hurricane Jose to Bring Coastal Flooding, Rain, Wind to the Eastern Seaboard; Tropical Storm Warnings Issued in Southeast New England
Hurricane Jose, a Category 1 hurricane in the western Atlantic, despite remaining well offshore, will still produce a combination of coastal flooding, high surf, tropical storm-force winds and heavy rain along parts of the East Coast in what may end up being a glorified nor'easter, without the snow.
Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of coastal southeast New England ahead Hurricane Jose's approach to the region.
The tropical storm warning includes areas from Watch Hill, Rhode Island, to Hull, Massachusetts, including Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket.
This means tropical storm-force winds are expected within 36 hours.
A tropical storm watch remains in effect from Fenwick Island, Delaware, to Sandy Hook, New Jersey, including the Delaware Bay South, and from East Rockaway Inlet, New York, to Watch Hill, Rhode Island, including Long Island Sound.
A watch means tropical storm conditions are possible within 48 hours.
Jose's center is currently located about 265 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and is moving north at about 10 mph.
