Hurricane Jose Inches Closer to Eastern Seaboard

But, our main focus is Tropical Storm Maria: it will hit Leeward Islands as a hurricane by Tuesday.

Hurricane season is roaring on as Tropical Storm Lee forms far from land, Jose threatens the U.S. East Coast and Norma moves closer to Mexico.

After weakening to a tropical storm on Thursday, Jose returned to Category 1 hurricane status Friday night.

Hurricane and tropical storm watches have already been issued for parts of the Lesser Antilles, as the storm is expected to strengthen as it heads toward the Leeward Islands for Monday.

However, early models of T.S. Marie, which already has winds of 50 miles per hour and is located about 620 mi east southeast of the Lesser Antilles, show that it could possibly impact areas already ravaged by Hurricane Irma.

Hurricane Jose's center should pass well east of the North Carolina coast on Monday and remain offshore from Virginia to New England, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in a forecast on Saturday.

"On the forecast track, the center of Jose will move over the western Atlantic Ocean between the east coast of the United States and Bermuda through Monday".

Arjan Singh flew against the tribal forces before he was transferred for a brief stint with the newly formed No.2 IAF Squadron. Singh was educated at Montgomery, British India (now in Pakistan) and had joined the RAF College, Cranwell in 1938.

The swells can create life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. It is moving west at 20 miles per hour.

A fall trough moving across the US, he said, could also strengthen a ridge in the northeast, preventing the storm from moving out to sea.

It's also possible that the high pressure system now preventing the storm from moving out to sea will shift and finally usher Jose away from land.

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Maria is in an environment that is conducive to strengthening over the next couple of days.

"Tropical storm watches may be needed for portiions of this area during the next day or two".

Maria is now expected to bring tropical storm conditions to parts of the Leeward Islands on Monday, with hurricane conditions possible by Monday night or Tuesday.

Saturday's Maria forecast shows that the storm is expected to reach major hurricane strength by Wednesday with winds around 120 miles per hour.
