Jersey shore under tropical storm watch as Hurricane Jose passes by

Jose Restrengthens To Hurricane Status; Heads Toward US East Coast

A "burst of convection" occurred in Maria's center yesterday afternoon, with an open eyewall forming in the storm's core, National Hurricane Center forecasters said.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Jose was moving north Monday morning at about 9 miles per hour, which could make it a threat later in the week to northeastern states, the center said.

Hurricane Jose is now joined by Hurricane Maria and Tropical Storm Lee. Unfortunately, the forecast track for Maria takes it across the same Caribbean islands hit recently by Irma and Jose.

The US National Hurricane Center said Maria had maximum sustained winds of 120 mp/h overnight.

The hurricane is expected to strengthen into a Category 3 storm by Tuesday.

British Airways flight held at Paris airport over security threat
Flight BA0303 was due to leave Charles de Gaulle airport at 7.25 but was evacuated on the tarmac. Sniffer dogs checked the plane and found no threat, police said as they lifted the alert.

Maria is expected to track towards the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Hispaniola during the midweek and will deliver flooding rain, damaging winds and mudslides.

Maria is expected to continue to gain strength and could become a major hurricane within the next couple of days.

Hurricane warnings were posted for the United States and British Virgin Islands, Guadeloupe, Dominica, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, Martinique and St. Lucia. One of our computer models the GFS is projecting wind gusts to 45 miles per hour in the Stonington to New London area. If Jose weakens considerably, or moves away from the Northeast coast, Maria could possibly take a more western track and be of more concern to the USA east coast. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky. Tropical storm watches were in effect on the coast of Long Island, N.Y., from Fire Island Inlet to Port Jefferson. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 105 miles from the center.

"While Maria's trajectory may appear similar to Irma's, realize that Maria is a different storm and will carve out a unique track independent of Irma's track", said Waldenberger. Jose is moving north at 9 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center's 5 p.m. advisory has Maria nearly 620 miles east-southeast from The Lesser Antilles.
