Lee weakens to Topical Depression, Maria might form into hurricane

Current Storm Status

A hurricane watch is in effect for the U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Saba and St. Eustatius, St. Maarten, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy and Anguilla.

Hurricane Jose may bring trouble to the U.S. East Coast in the coming days - producing unsafe surf and rip currents along the middle and upper coastline.

Meanwhile, the hurricane-battered islands of the Caribbean are facing yet another storm threat. The US Virgin Islands, which took a devastating hit from Hurricane Irma, is under a hurricane watch ahead of Hurricane Maria.

Various computer forecasts have Maria taking a more northerly path than Irma once it passes north of the Dominican Republic and Haiti, with most taking it into the Atlantic Ocean.

Maria could become a major category three hurricane by Wednesday as it continues to move toward the northwest and near Hispaniola by the end of the week.

Forecasters still think the hurricane will stay offshore but said it will be felt along parts of the coast - either with winds or unsafe surf or both.

The storm was moving towards the west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

As of a special 7:45 p.m. update by the National Hurricane Center on Monday, the center of Hurricane Maria was about 45 miles east-southeast of Dominica.

A tropical storm warning means tropical storm conditions are possible within the next 36 hours within the warning area. A hurricane watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds.

Jose is expected to bring strong winds and rain to Bermuda today and into tomorrow after it passes to the islands west and tracks north off the east coast of the United States.

Tropical storm warnings are in effect from Watch Hill, R.I., to Hull, Mass.; Block Island, R.I.; Martha's Vineyard, Mass.; and Nantucket, Mass.
