Hurricane Jose poses major threat to shipping, real estate along East Coast

Jose had winds of 80 miles per hour, making it a Category 1 hurricane. Jose is already causing unsafe swells and surf for Bermuda, the Bahamas, and the northern coasts of Hispaniola. According to the forecast, it could potentially hit the north portion of the East Coast and bring large waves in the coastal area of Bermuda, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, Hispaniola, as well as the southeastern part of the US.

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

They noted that while Jose is expected to bring rain and wind to the U.S. Northeast next week, these new Atlantic systems join Hurricane Jose.

Jose could affect five refineries along the US East Coast that are able to process about 1.1 million barrels a day of oil, Bloomberg data showed.

Jose, formerly a Category 3 hurricane, is expected to produce rip currents and high-surf along portions of the US east coast.

Lee formed into a tropical storm on Saturday, Sep 16 off the coast of Africa.

Numerous same islands that are recovering from Irma are being advised to prepare for Maria's arrival. It was centered about 405 miles (655 kilometers) southeast of the Lesser Antilles and was heading west-northwest at 15 mph (24 kph).

"Hurricane watches have been issued for Antigua and Barbuda, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Montserrat". A watch has been issued for Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra, U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as the British Virgin Islands, St. Martin, St. Maarten, St. Barthelemy, Anguilla, Saba and St. Eustatius.

One of those systems, dubbed Tropical Depression Fourteen, is forecast to develop into a tropical storm.

The NHC said that Tropical Storm Lee had sustained winds of 40 mph and was about 720 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands, moving west at 10 mph. Lee will likely encounter unfavourable oceanic and atmospheric conditions, weakening the storm signficantly before it can become any threat to land. Another check of the storm's wind speed will be conducted on Saturday to see where it stands.

Unfortunately, conditions similar to those that allowed Hurricane Irma to intensify and track through parts of the island chain are still more or less in place. Thereafter, the storm should slowly begin to weaken due to increased shear.
