Jose shows slight strengthening; two other systems in Atlantic

Jose shows slight strengthening; two other systems in Atlantic

Category 1 Hurricane "Jose" is expected to move toward New England; it will likely weaken once it gets north of the Gulf Stream and before it reaches the Rhode Island or MA coastline.

According to the National Hurricane Center, swells from Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the southeast coast of the United States.

Instead the hurricane is expected to make a slow, clockwise loop as it moves toward the southeast. The swells are likely to cause unsafe surf and rip current conditions.

The storm has maximum sustained winds near 70 miles per hour.

By early next week, weather forecasting models indicate that Jose is likely to be pushed northward parallel to the East Coast but away from land.

If it continues toward New York City, Jose could disrupt vessels carrying crude oil, petrochemicals and refined products in the Atlantic seaboard, "particularly those making deliveries to New York Harbor", said Shunondo Basu, a Bloomberg New Energy Finance meteorologist and natural gas analyst in New York.

Tropical Depression Fourteen over 450 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

Both areas have a 70 percent chance of becoming tropical systems within the next five days.

The storm will keep driving north past the Mid-Atlantic coast on Tuesday and Wednesday, probably weakening from hurricane strength back down to a tropical storm as it encounters cooler water and shearing upper-level winds.

The forward tropical wave should hit the Leeward Islands in five days and is moving rather rapidly.
