Jose downgraded to tropical storm

Tropical Storm Jose will continue to remain out over the open waters of the Atlantic with the eventual track carrying the storm just off the east coast of the US next week which will likely mean very rough seas, breezy conditions and risky rip currents up the eastern seaboard next week.

Meanwhile, there are no disturbances in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean or eastern Atlantic that are expected to develop into a new tropical storm over the next several days. The latest forecast tracks suggest it will moved north, paralleling the East Coast before nearing land in the vicinity of MA on Wednesday.

Meteorologist Jeremy Wheeler reports the most likely path for Jose remains out at sea.

The storm may bring a high risk of rip currents, too. For a time, it was a unsafe Category 4 storm, with 150-mph winds.

Irma spun along at tropical storm or hurricane status for about 13 days, and Jose could surpass Irma's longevity if it's still around on Monday.

He was the No. 40 overall pick by Miami in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft after a four-year career at Tennessee. Richardson's new deal will go into effect for the 2018-19 season and would run through 2022 if he plays out the entire contract.

Forecasters are also monitoring Invest 96-L, located about 1,200 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles. Coincidentally, the average track error for the forecast at five days is 225 miles. The storm is centered about 360 miles northeast of the southeastern Bahamas and is moving west-northwest near 8 mph.

"Even though Jose will not come close to any landmass through at leastMonday, it will generate large swells that will propagate away from the hurricane", Kottlowski said. The storm is predicted to take a northern turn late Friday and into Saturday morning, Orrock said, pushing its path just off the Hampton Roads coast.

It's Jose's potential track that is getting all the attention, however.

It is the fourth major hurricane to pose a threat to America and the nearby southern islands this season - after Harvey and Katia (the latter of which caused no real damage). Last year, Hurricane Otto formed on November 20 and made landfall in Nicaragua as a Category 2 storm.
