Caribbean under hurricane watch again with Tropical Storm Maria following Irma's track

Hurricane Jose strengthens slightly 500 miles south of Bermuda: NHC

Tropical Storm Maria is the third system to affect the region in recent weeks, following the passages of Hurricanes Irma and Jose earlier this month.

Most recently, the center of the storm was reportedly located 875 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

A forecast cone for Tropical Storm Lee as of 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017.

The center added that tropical storm watches were possible for the U.S. East Coast later in the day and advised people from North Carolina to New England to monitor Jose's progress.

According to The Weather Channel, Hurricane Jose is now a Category 1 hurricane located in the western part of the Atlantic Ocean, as of Saturday, Sept. 16.

If Jose continues on its path, the most immediate impact could be high surf and considerable beach erosion along the shores of the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts, Masters said.

Tropical Storm and Hurricane Watches have been issued ahead of Maria for many island groups - including for several islands that were just clobbered by Hurricane Irma.

The National Hurricane Center said Maria had winds of 75 miles per hour as of 5 p.m. ET on Sunday, making it a Category 1 hurricane. Antigua and Barbuda are in a hurricane watch, issued by their local governments; 95% of the structures and homes on Barbuda were completely destroyed by Irma and the island residents were evacuated to temporary shelters last week on Antigua.

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

At 5 p.m.Saturday, this storm had maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour.

In addition to Jose, Tropical Storms Lee & Maria are also out in the Atlantic.Tropical Depression Lee will likely fizzle out over the next few days. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or unsafe. Tropical Storm Lee will continue moving westward slowly through the end of this week.

It is still too early to tell whether it will have any direct impact on the Lowcountry, but Live 5 forecaster Jordan Wilkerson said it is definitely a storm to keep an eye on. Forecasters said the storm was weakening and its center was likely to remain offshore.

The storm is now is expected to become a hurricane be next week but will remain over open waters and pose no threats to land.
