Tropical Storm Jose upgrades to hurricane; potential tropical storm watches in US

Maria is expected to gain strength through the weekend and become a hurricane by late Monday, forecasters said.

Tropical Storm Maria continued to move westward over Atlantic waters with sustained winds of up to 50 miles per hour and higher gusts.

Maria is expected to strengthen and affect portions of the Leeward Islands as a hurricane early this week, bringing risky wind, storm surge and rainfall hazards.

Hurricane Jose was expected to strengthen over the weekend, bringing potentially risky surf and rip tide conditions from North Carolina to New England by early next week, the National Weather Service said Friday afternoon.

Hurricane Jose is generating powerful swells in the Atlantic, and the National Hurricane Center is urging people along the East Coast to monitor the storm's path.

We are also looking at two areas of low pressure in the Eastern Atlantic off the African coast that have a chance to develop into a tropical depression or storm in the next five days.

The National Hurricane Center expects Maria to intensify into a major Category 3 storm with sustained winds as strong as 125 miles per hour over the next three days.

They added that it is expected to become Tropical Storm Maria by Saturday evening. From there, the forecast remains uncertain. It has 35 mph winds and is located about 430 miles southwest of the Cabo Verde islands.

Drew Pearson, emergency manager, says residents and visitors should stock up on any essentials and watch the forecast through Tuesday in case the storm track farther inland. Tropical storm winds extend up to 60 miles.

Computer simulations are all over the map beyond three days, but some show the storm on a path toward the southeast US coastline. It will probably weaken in the next four days, forecasters predict.
