Jose Moves Closer To East Coast: Will Connecticut Be In The Cone?

In the latest model from the National Hurricane Center, the potential path of Tropical Storm Jose shifted toward the East Coast — and possibily closer to Connecticut.

The cone shows the probable track of the center of the storm — which was downgraded from a hurricane — over the next five days.

Jose is expected to strengthen and become a hurricane again by this weekend, the center said.

And by next Tuesday, the storm could be sitting off Connecticut, according to the map.

The storm may stay out to sea, but it is expected to move closer to the coastline of the Eastern Seaboard.

"Jose could produce other direct impacts next week along portions of the East Coast of the United States from North Carolina northward to New England, but it is too soon to determine what those impacts might be or where they could occur," the hurricane center said.

It's not clear how strong Jose will be and how it could impact Connecticut. But it is expected to bring at least rain, winds and heavy surf.

On Thursday evening, Jose was in the southwest Atlantic Ocean, about 405 miles east-northeast of the southeastern Bahamas, and was moving west-northwest at 8 mph.
