DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Jose was located near latitude 39.6 North, longitude 67.9 West. Jose is currently stationary, and the system is expected to meander well offshore of the coast of southeastern New England during the next few days. Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next couple of days, and Jose is expected to become post-tropical on Friday. Jose is a large system. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km) from the center. A sustained wind of 39 mph (63 km/h) with a gust to 52 mph (83 km/h) was recently reported at the Nantucket airport. An unofficial observing site in Vineyard Haven on Martha's Vineyard just reported a sustained wind of 42 mph (69 km/h) with a gust to 52 mph (83 km/h). The estimated minimum central pressure is 987 mb (29.15 inches). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected to continue in the warning area through tonight. SURF: Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda and much of the U.S. east coast and will likely cause dangerous surf and rip current conditions during the next couple of days. For more information, please consult products from your local weather office. RAINFALL: Jose is expected to produce additional rainfall accumulations of 1 to 2 inches across Cape Cod and the offshore islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
