Tracking the Tropics: Watching Jose, Lee and Maria in active Atlantic

'Direct impacts' from Jose possible at Shore and coastal Northeast, hurricane center says

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.

Maria was about 450 miles (720 km) east-southeast of the Leeward Islands at 11 a.m. E.T., with maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour.

As the storm continues its path, it could "affect the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by mid week as a unsafe major hurricane", the NHC reported.

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. It said these swells are likely to cause risky surf and life-threatening rip currents for several days in these areas.

The hurricane center also says "a tropical storm watch may be needed for a portion of the North Carolina coast tomorrow".

It was centered about 355 miles (575 kilometers) southeast of Cape Hattaras late Sunday morning and was moving north at 9 mph (15 kph).

By contrast, if you pay upfront for the phone, you can sell it on eBay or trade it in elsewhere and get some credit for its value. The Cupertino tech giant is also increasing its fix and replacement prices for its iPhones, making things even more expensive.

Maria joins Tropical Storm Lee, which formed earlier Saturday in the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

Jose's winds increased to 90 miles per hour, the hurricane center said. Later, it intensified to hurricane first category, but then weakened. The storm is completing a loop, and will be passing close to North Carolina early next week.

As Hurricane Jose continues to strengthen as it moves up the East coast, Staten Island may feel the effects of the storm during the first half of next week. It says North Carolina northward to New England on the east coast should monitor the progress of this system. Forecasts this far in advance can be hundreds of miles off, though.

But the system could still affect the tristate area as it lumbers north - with parts of NY well within the storm's possible path.

The second storm is only just beginning but it could eventually develop into Hurricane Maria.
