Tropical storm warning expanded to United States northeast

Hurricane Jose strengthens slightly 500 miles south of Bermuda: NHC

Most long-range computer models suggest Maria could exploit the same break in a mid-level high pressure ridge that Jose did. and thus pass east of the southeastern US coast this weekend and early next week.

At the beginning of September, Tropical Storm Lidia left seven people dead on its stormy passage through the state of Baja California.

At one point, Lee was named the 11th storm of the Atlantic hurricane season on Saturday.

The storm formed September 5 in the open Atlantic, brushed northeast Caribbean islands as a Category 4 storm and did a loop the loop before tracking west again toward the U.S.

Hurricane or tropical storm warnings were posted for numerous islands, including those already coping with the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma, such as St. Barts and Antigua and Barbuda.

First, Jose is a Category 1 hurricane in the western Atlantic between the Bahamas and Bermuda. The average year produces 12 storms.

Suspect Killed, Officer Shot In New Castle
Sunday when New Castle police received a report of a man breaking into cars near K Avenue and Columbus Street. The man seems unaffected when the officer fires the stun gun and quickly rushes toward the officer.

If it continues toward New York City, Jose could disrupt vessels carrying crude oil, petrochemicals and refined products along the Atlantic seaboard, "particularly those making deliveries to New York Harbour", Shunondo Basu, a Bloomberg New Energy Finance meteorologist and natural gas analyst in New York, said on Friday (Saturday NZT).

On Saturday night, the storm was some 210 miles south of Los Cabos, packing maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour and pushing north at three miles an hour. This storm is looking healthy on visible satellite and strengthening will be possible through the next few days.

Rain totals Tuesday into Wednesday of 1 to 3 inches for southern and coastal ME and New Hampshire are possible. "Tropical storm conditions are possible here on Monday", The Weather Channel reports. That should slow the storm and cause it to head to the northwest.

On its forecast track, Maria is expected to approach the Leeward Islands on Monday.

Lee is not expected to pose any threat to the USA mainland.

Tropical Storm Maria is forecast to become a hurricane by Monday. There's also a chance it could menace Florida and the U.S. Southeast. 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.
