Along with Hurricane Jose, that makes three named storms in the Atlantic Basin this weekend.
The National Hurricane Center is monitoring two more disturbances in the Atlantic Ocean.
Risky surf and rip currents are expected along the east coast of the United States as Jose moves closer to land.
Hurricane Maria, far to the south, is forecast to track across the storm-battered Leeward Islands by tonight, possibly as a major hurricane.
Maximum sustained winds are near 80 miles per hour with higher gusts.
Jose is expected to pass close to Long Island on Tuesday and into Wednesday, but it's not now expected to make landfall.
All the while, it's worth noting that Hurricane Maria will be bearing down on parts of the Caribbean, including the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, areas still picking up from Irma. Also be sure to follow the First Alert Storm Team on Social Media.
Hurricane Maria, which formed Saturday, was upgraded to a hurricane with the NHC's 5 p.m. advisory. The National Hurricane Center's 5 p.m. advisory has Maria nearly 620 miles east-southeast from The Lesser Antilles. Lee has become a Tropical Depression and will fall apart even more so over the next few days. Interests along the northeast US and New England coasts need to watch to see how close Jose may get to the USA before heading out to the northern Atlantic. Hurricane and Tropical Storm Warnings/Watches have been issued for portions of the Leeward Islands. The storm is 790 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands with maximum sustained winds at 40 mph.
Maria is now moving west-northwest at 10 miles per hour and will roar through the Leeward Islands this afternoon bringing catastrophic damage to those islands near the center of the storm.
