  • Tropical storm Jose

The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, "At 1100 AM AST [1500 UTC], the center of Tropical Storm Jose was located near latitude 24.9 North, longitude 66.6 West". Tropical Storm Jose, with winds around 70 miles an hour, is likely to develop into a hurricane by Saturday.

The hurricane center also says "a tropical storm watch may be needed for a portion of the North Carolina coast tomorrow".

Hurricane Irma (left) and Hurricane Jose are pictured in the Atlantic Ocean in this September 7, 2017 NOAA satellite handout photo. Right now, it looks like the Carolina coast will feel minimal impact, but there could be some high surf and potentially some wind in the northeast if Jose gets close enough to New England.

The storm, which is now 640 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, is moving northwest at 10 mph. An Air Force plane is en route to determine if Jose's winds have reached 75 miles per hour, which would make it a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, the hurricane center said.

Officials are holding daily calls with those facilities to make sure they have everything they need to care for their residents. The eight elderly patients who died at a Broward County nursing home have not yet been included in the death toll.


Regardless, large swells generated by Jose will continue to affect the Bahamas, Bermuda and the north coasts of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands the next several days.

The coast will see some higher surf, unsafe rip currents and possiblly some rain Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

New York City is in the so-called "cone of uncertainty" for Jose - and could be impacted by the tropical storm next week, according to a recent projection from the National Weather Service. "Prudence dictates that people in southern New England should pay close attention to later forecasts regarding Jose this weekend", the forecasters said.

Another potential hurricane threat is approaching North America's Western coast, as Tropical Storm Norma is predicted to become a hurricane over the weekend before making landfall north of Cabo San Lucas on Baja California Sur in Mexico late Monday or early Tuesday. But it weakened after reaching that peak last weekend.
