Hurricane Jose stirs up surf at Jersey shore

A few showers and an isolated storm are possible Sunday afternoon as Jose passes well offshore

Maria is moving to the west-northwest at 15 miles per hour and hurricane watches and warnings are already in effect for the Leeward Islands.

Maria is now a category one hurricane, the lowest on the scale of five, located 225 kilometers (140 miles) east of Barbados, with maximum sustained winds of 120 kmh (75 mph).

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Antigua, Anguilla, Barbuda, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten.

The NHC also issued a tropical storm watch for portions of the U.S. mid-Atlantic and New England coast by Tuesday as a second hurricane, Jose, moved slowly north from its current position in the Atlantic Ocean about 535km south-east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Meanwhile, hurricane warnings have been issued for St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, Guadeloupe and Dominica.

"The only definite thing that we know of will be a period of rain, some risky rip currents and some very rough surf particularly along the South Coast of MA and Rhode Island", said Matthew Belk, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Maria is now moving west-northwest at 10 miles per hour, and is expected to slow in forward speed through Tuesday night - leading to higher rainfall amounts. There also various tropical storm watches. Hurricane Maria is now 140 miles East-Northeast of Barbados and 275 miles East-Southeast of Dominica.

New York Giants 'Optimistic' Odell Beckham Jr. Will Play Monday Night
From Game 12 of a year ago through this season's opener, the Giants have scored fewer than 20 points in seven straight games. I think everybody knows that. "Dallas did some things that I would say caught us off-guard up front", he said.

"On the forecast track, the center of Maria will move across the Leeward Islands late today (Monday) and tonight and then over the extreme northeastern Caribbean Sea Tuesday and Tuesday night", the NHC said.

By Wednesday morning, Jose is forecast to stop moving north and begin re-curving east into the Atlantic.

Since the storm isn't expected to directly pass over New York City, Dickman anticipates a "fairly minor" impact on its metro region.

The main effects from Jose will be felt locally from late morning Tuesday through Wednesday afternoon.

Caribbean nations are bracing for the second powerful storm in as many weeks as Hurricane Maria approaches. As of 8 a.m., sustained winds had reached 110 miles per hour.

On Dominica, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit warned residents that just because the island dodged Irma residents should not take Maria's threat lightly. Hurricane Jose, Tropical Depression Lee and Tropical Storm Maria each bear watching for their potential impacts to the U.S.
