NWS: Tropical Storm Watch canceled as Jose weakens

NWS: Tropical Storm Watch canceled as Jose weakens”

NASA's Aqua satellite captured cloud top temperatures of Tropical Storm Jose that revealed the strongest storms were in the northeastern part of the tropical cyclone but the storm is so large that it is causing risky ocean conditions from Bermuda to the U.S. East coast.

The National Hurricane Center forecast cone that we show on WECT products is the official and best resource for storm intensity and track information.

Wind Advisories and Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect for parts of Southern New England.

While Tropical Storm Jose isn't expected to cause major issues in CT, the storm will pass off the coast of New England and the effects will be felt in CT and our neighbors in Rhode Island and MA. Clouds associated with Jose stretched from North Carolina up to Nova Scotia, Canada.

Jose has been gradually expanding and has its strongest convection and strongest winds located on the northwest side of the storm's center of circulation. That puts Jose's center about 150 miles (245 km) south of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts.

Your First Alert Weather Team continues to monitor tropical systems Jose and Maria. Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 miles per hour (95 kph) with higher gusts.

An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain will be possible on Nantucket, and 1-2 inches are forecast for Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard. A disturbance moving out of the Great Lakes, along with a ridge of high pressure nosing into New England out of Quebec will force Jose to gradually turn northeast away from the East Coast.

Forecasters have issued a flood watch for the city's coastal areas Tuesday as heavy rain and strong winds brought on by Hurricane Jose are expected to batter the boroughs.
