Tropical Storms Lee and Maria tracking west

Tropical Storms Lee and Maria tracking west

The chance for tropical storm force winds on eastern Long Island has been downgraded to 20 to 30 percent, from 30 to 40 percent, Vaz said.

The hurricane had maximum sustained winds of 80 mph and was located about 485 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and was heading north at 6 mph.

The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season continues to stay active as three named storms churn out over the Atlantic this week.

Those calls, which are subject to change, are based on Saturday evening's update from the National Hurricane Center, which indicated that Jose's center is expected "to pass well east of the North Carolina coast on Monday".

The official forecast track from the hurricane center puts Jose as a strong tropical storm Wednesday 225 miles southeast of NY.

Maria is about 590 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is packing maximum sustained winds of 50 mph. A hurricane watch is in effect for Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Nevis and Montserrat A tropical storm watch is in effect for St. Lucia, Martinique and Guadeloupe, Dominica, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Interests along the northeast USA and New England coasts need to watch to see how close Jose may get to the US before heading out to the northern Atlantic.

Lee has redeveloped into a Tropical Storm over the open Altantic Ocean. As the Capital Weather Gang's Greg Porter explains, Tropical Storm Maria seems to be intensifying, and may follow a track similar to Irma, fed by the same weather conditions that made Irma so powerful. Maximum sustained winds are at 80 miles per hour.

Tropical storm watches have be issued for portions of the Lesser Antilles.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Maria is projected to become a major hurricane as it moves across the Leeward islands toward Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

One of those systems, dubbed Tropical Depression Fourteen, is forecast to develop into a tropical storm.

The storm's winds won't get close to land until Sunday or Monday - but it was formally declared a hurricane again on Friday afternoon. These islands are still recovering from Hurricane Irma, which hit just over a week ago.

"Gradual weakening is expected, and Lee could degenerate into a remnant low by 48 hours, is not sooner", NHC forecaster Robbie Berg said.
