TUESDAY - SEPTEMBER 19

Hurricane Jose will continue to slowly move through the offshore waters to the southeast of New Jersey today .  Jose will turn to the northeast and east tonight passing south of Long Island.  For the remainder of the workweek, Jose will weaken but linger about 300 miles offshore causing continued high surf and minor coastal flooding.

Outside of some periods of rain and wind gusts of 35 mph along the immediate coast, the main impact from Jose will be rough surf and coastal flooding.  

Coastal flooding will be moderate at this evenings high tide around 8:00 p.m. so the usual areas prone to coastal flooding will see water in the streets.  Because Jose will linger offshore, the likelihood of minor coastal flooding will continue at each high tide between today and Friday.  It appears that this evening's high tide will be the highest, but nuisance coastal flooding will persist for the remainder of the work week.  Times of high tide during this period will be between the hours of 8:00am and 10:00am and again between 8:00pm and 10:00pm.

Category 5 Hurricane Maria, which will likely severely impact the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, will then move to the northeast of the Bahamas later this week.  It does appear as though Jose will provide an assist, in conjunction with an approaching cold front, in steering Maria northward and then northeastward offshore in the middle part of next week and miss the US mainland.  That is still days away so Maria still bears watching.
