  • Jose continues offshore track; Maria threatens Leeward Islands

This storm will be followed by another storm named as Maria on Saturday that could attain the potential of a hurricane as it approaches the Leeward Islands on Monday.

Tropical Storm Maria is forecast to continue west-northwest over the next couple days, with the center nearing the Leeward Islands Monday night. Hurricane-force winds extend 35 miles from the storm's center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend up to 140 miles from its center.

Surf swells are also impacting many areas, including Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico and the southeast coast of the USA, including North Carolina.

Jose could bring rain and wind to the US Northeast early next week.

Rip currents and high surf could impact the U.S. East Coast, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the northern coast of Puerto Rico, according to The Weather Channel in a report on Friday afternoon.

The hurricane center warned those from North Carolina to New England to keep an eye on the storm, and said tropical storm watches may be needed for parts of the area during the next day or two.

The latest forecast for Hurricane Jose shows the storm picking up speed on Sunday, though it hadn't gotten any stronger as of early Sunday morning.

Tropical Storm Lee formed in the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday morning, and is likely to move toward the Caribbean Islands over the course of the week. Maximum sustained winds are near 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Jose has strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane in the Atlantic, but there is no current threat to land. Later, it intensified to hurricane first category, but then weakened. Maria is expected to intensify in the coming days as the environment is favorable.

The National Hurricane Center says people from North Carolina to New England should monitor the progress of the system.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for sustained winds below tropical storm force of 39 miles per hour along the coast Monday and Tuesday, but gusts could reach 44 miles per hour.
