4 maps showing Hurricane Jose's path in the Atlantic

Parts of Long Island and CT remain in Jose's so-called "cone of uncertainty" and could potentially be in the crosshairs of the category 1 storm sometime midway through next week.

Waves churned up by the storm are affecting the Southeast U.S. coast as well as Bermuda, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico and will spread toward the Mid-Atlantic coast over the next few days.

"Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 70 miles per hour [110 km/h] with higher gusts".

The Canadian computer model keeps Jose away from North Carolina but does have landfall in along Cape Cod with tropical storm winds for Boston and Providence, RI.

The official forecast track from the hurricane center puts Jose as a strong tropical storm Wednesday 225 miles southeast of NY.

Luis Rosa, a forecaster with the weather service's Baltimore-Washington office, said Jose was expected to pass Ocean City early Tuesday afternoon, but its center would be more than 200 miles offshore.

On Friday, Jose was again a Category 1 hurricane.

The CSAC made that move, after it reported Jones' B sample from UFC 214 tested positive for the anabolic steroid, Turinabol . A few months later, he was involved in a hit-and-run accident, stripped of his title, and suspended by the UFC.

If this system strengthens further it will become Tropical Storm Lee.

"Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles [185 km] from the center".

The hurricane was located far from land but is generating powerful swells that were affecting coastal areas in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and the southeast US, the National Hurricane Center said.

This system is not expected to be a threat to land.

It has a 40 percent chance of development over five days.

September 10 is the statistical peak of the 6-month period when tropical cyclones lurk in the Atlantic basin, a climatological summit bookended by weeks where the tropics roll out the welcome mat for burgeoning systems.

That increased risk of rip currents will spread northward along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the US during the next few days.
