							Jose continues to weaken over the western Atlantic

Life-threatening rip currents are possible along portions of the US east cost from Jose, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm, which is now 640 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, is moving northwest at 10 mph.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend out about 70 miles from the center of the storm.

As of an 11 a.m. advisory, Hurricane Jose had sustained winds of 80 miles per hour and was moving northwest at 9 miles per hour.

By 11 a.m. Saturday, the latest advisory showed the storm potentially moving farther east of New England, though forecasters warn not to focus on the exact track of the cone.

In the Atlantic, Hurricane Jose was far from land but generating powerful swells that the center said were affecting coastal areas in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the USA southeast.

The coast will see some higher surf, unsafe rip currents and possiblly some rain Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Maximum sustained winds were clocked at 70 miles per hour.

At one point, Jose was a Category 4 hurricane that barely missed the same islands in the Antilles where Irma made a direct hit.

The storm is forecast to pass well offshore of North Carolina early next week and could then menace New England. Of 20 runs of the GFS model ensemble forecast Monday morning, 25% resulted in an eventual landfall in the USA, and another 25% in Canada.

The storm, which strengthened to a Category 1 Hurricane on Friday, is expected to make its way past CT overnight Tuesday into Wednesday as a tropical storm, according to the latest forecast from NOAA.

After doing a loop-the-loop out in the Atlantic Ocean, Hurricane Jose appears poised to take a track up the East Coast.

Tropical storm-force winds from Hurricane Jose could reach the N.C. coast by Sunday morning. Little change in strength is expected during the next two days.
