  • Tropical Storm Lee weakens to a depression

Tropical Storm Maria will continue to intensify over the next few days, and is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane later Sunday. Maria is forecast to become a hurricane as it approaches the islands.

The centre added that tropical storm watches were possible for the U.S. East Coast later in the day and advised people from North Carolina to New England to monitor Jose's progress.

Tropical storm-force winds now extend outward up to 95km and the estimated minimum central pressure is 994mb, the Met Office added.

Tropical storm conditions were possible on Monday in those areas as well as St. Lucia, Martinique, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Jose, a long-lived hurricane, was churning its way north through the Atlantic Ocean Sunday morning as a Category-1 storm, with maximum sustained winds of 130 km per hour. Additional tropical storm or hurricane watches and warnings will likely be issued on Sunday.

It triggered tropical storm warnings, meaning tropical storm conditions within 36 hours for parts of the peninsula, as the NHC forecasted up to 20 inches of rain in isolated pockets which could "produce life-threatening flash floods".

Hurricane watches were issued for Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Nevis and Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Saba and St. Eustatius, St. Maarten, Dominica and Anguilla, CNN reported.

Wind shear was keeping Lee considerably weaker with sustained winds of about 40 miles per hour as it was crossing the Atlantic.

No areas of the coast are now under storm watches or warnings, and forecasters stressed vigilance as the storm could hit land or move back out to sea. By that point, the storm will be on the doorstep of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 100 km/h with higher gusts.

While Jose is projected to weaken and veer away from any direct impact on the coast, the Hurricane Center said a minor shift could bring tropical-storm-force winds to North Carolina's Outer Banks or areas to the north.
