9/19/17 – 12:00 AM
UPDATE – 3
No Significant change in Jose since the last update. The center of Jose took a slight north-northwest turn earlier tonight due to a convective burst, but it appears it is back moving toward the north.
A continued northward motion at about the same forward speed is expected during the next day or so while the hurricane remains on the west side of a mid-level ridge over the western Atlantic. All of the guidance keeps the center of Jose offshore of southern New England, but close enough to cause tropical-storm force winds for a portion of the area. Thereafter, a trough currently over central Canada is expected to cause Jose to turn eastward in the 2 to 3 day time frame. The trough is then expected to lift out, leaving Jose drifting to the south and southwest under a blocking ridge forming over the northeastern United States. Little change was made to the previous NHC track.
Hurricane Jose is forecasted to pass well to the east of our area between Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Tropical Storm watches are still in place for the NY, NJ and Connecticut coastlines.
The Lindenhurst Office of Emergency Management continues to monitor Hurricanes Jose and Maria, and will issued updates as deemed necessary.

9/18/17 – 12:30 AM
UPDATE – 1
Hurricane Jose should pass well to the east of our area between Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Tropical Storm watches have been issued for the NY, NJ and Connecticut coastlines.
While the center of Jose is currently forecast to remain offshore, the system could cause some direct impacts from Delaware northward to New England, and any deviation to the left of the current National Hurricane Center forecasted track would increase the likelihood and magnitude of those impacts.
A tropical storm watch is no in effect from the Delaware coast to southeastern Massachusetts. Interests elsewhere along the U.S. East Coast from North Carolina to New England should monitor the progress of Jose through the next several days.
There is a possibility of some minor to moderate coastal flooding possible during the next couple of days. Please see products issued by local National Weather Service forecast offices.
Ocean swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, and much of the United States East Coast. These swells are likely to cause rough surf and rip current conditions.
Jose will likely produce heavy rain as it passes mid Atlantic coast on Tuesday and Wednesday. Total accumulations of three to five inches are possible over eastern Long Island, southern Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts, including Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Any deviation to the left of the current forecasted track, however, could bring heavier and more widespread rainfall to Long Island, New York City and New Jersey. If this deviation were to occur, the risk of urban flash flooding and some river flooding would increase.
The Lindenhurst Office of Emergency Management will continue to monitor Hurricane Jose and provide additional updates as necessary.
