Hurricane Jose may cause winds, rain along Staten Island coastline

Two additional tropical storms or hurricanes are likely join Jose named Lee and Maria.

The hurricane was forecast to pass east of the North Carolina coast Monday and stay offshore from Virginia to New England.

There are no warnings or watches in place for the mainland USA, but the NHC said tropical storm watches "may be needed" for parts of the US east coast in the next couple days.

Masters said the storm's path could be influenced by Hurricane Jose, now hundreds of miles east of Florida and moving toward the coast of New England. That would mean winds up to 110 miles per hour.

The NHC thinks that Maria may be an extremely unsafe major hurricane (Cat 3+) as it approaches the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by late Tuesday into Wednesday.

Tropical Storm Lee formed Saturday morning, and as it continues to a trek to the northwest, is forecast to move over less favorable conditions, and is expected to lose tropical characteristics heading toward the end of the week.

Officials at the Hurricane Center said the cyclone appears to be located in a sweet spot of relatively low shear, with much stronger upper-level westerly winds located not too far to the north, and it may be able to thread the needle of lower shear for another 36 hours or so. Coincidentally, the average track error for the forecast at five days is 225 miles.

SURF: Swells generated by the depression are expected to begin affecting the Lesser Antilles by Sunday night. On Saturday evening, after Maria got its name, a hurricane watch was issued for Barbuda, Antigua, St. Kitts, Nevis, and Montserrat. As the Capital Weather Gang's Greg Porter explains, Tropical Storm Maria seems to be intensifying, and may follow a track similar to Irma, fed by the same weather conditions that made Irma so powerful.

Shortly before 5 p.m., the center of Tropical Depression Fifteen was located near latitude 12.3 North, longitude 52.6 West, about 620 east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles. The storm is making its way towards the west, Hurricane and Tropical Storm Watches have been issued for portions of the Leeward Islands.

Along with Jose, tropical storm action in the Atlantic remains extremely active. It is expected to strengthen as it makes its way west, forcing Caribbean islands to prepare for Maria's arrival even as they recover from the destruction Hurricane Irma left behind a week ago. An announcement is expected this weekend.
