Another Hurricane is heading up the East Coast, but right now staying out to in the Atlantic.  Right now, North and South Carolina are feeling the effects of Hurricane Jose.  According to ABC 7 in New York City reports Jose has grown to a category one storm with sustained winds of 90 miles per hour.   Meteorologist Jeff Smith reports that a Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for the Jersey Shore and Long Island.  Hurricane Jose is supposed to make its pass close to our area late Tuesday into Wednesday.  He goes on to tell us, that Jose will stay offshore, so the coast will feel the most from the storm.  Expect dangerous surf, strong rip currents, beach erosion and coastal flooding. Wave heights can top out at 10 to 15 feet.  Strong winds are expected over Long Island, at 50 mph.  New York City could see wind gusts up to 30mph.

The National Weather Service, says rain will most likely be what the Hudson Valley sees from Hurricane Jose.  Expect showers to enter the area Monday night and stay with us until Thursday.  The heaviest rain comes in Tuesday night into Wednesday.  Once again, only a tenth to quarter inch on Tuesday and a bit more on Wednesday.  No major wash out type rain.  No mention of the windy conditions.  By Thursday, high pressure will build into the region, putting into dry weather again.  Temperatures stay above average.  Low 80’s for Monday and mid 70’s for the rest of the week.
