Along with Jose, Storm Maria and Storm Lee form in the Atlantic

Hurricane jose

Tropical Storm Maria will become Hurricane Maria on Sunday, according to the latest forecast.

As of 8AM Tuesday, Jose was a Cateogory 1 Hurricane with sustained winds of 75 miles per hour.

Maria is one of three storms churning in the Atlantic Ocean, but it poses the most danger to the hurricane-battered Caribbean.

A Hurricane Warning is now in effect for the U. S. Virgin Islands. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

"The best chance for tropical storm force winds and heavy rain will be across eastern Long Island and southeast CT", the National Weather service said in a local hurricane statement Monday morning. After passing near the Virgin Islands, Irma could make a direct impact on Puerto Rico. Islands from the Lesser Antilles, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic are expected to be significantly impacted by Maria.

Sampieri, along with other meteorologists in the region, have stressed that people should keep an eye on the storm.

Maria has prompted a hurricane warning for Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominica, St. Kitts, Nevis and Montserrat.

The first part of the week will be dry with a few showers and storms returning by Thursday and Friday.

Swells generated by Jose are affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and much of the USA east coast.

Tropical Storm Lee formed Saturday morning way out in the Atlantic near Africa.

It added that it will likely fade to a tropical depression by Wednesday without affecting land. The storm, with maximum sustained winds at 40 mph, was located about 720 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and headed west at 10 mph.

A tropical storm watch was issued for southern Fairfield, southern New Haven, all of Middlesex and all of New London counties.

Hurricane Jose is moving northward, producing large swells and contributing to rip current risks along the southeast coast.
