|Hurricane Jose is classified as a Category 1 hurricane. Despite remaining well offshore, it will still produce a combination of coastal flooding, high surf, tropical-storm-force winds and heavy rain along parts of the East Coast in what may end up being a glorified nor’easter, without the snow.
Tropical storm warnings have been issued for parts of coastal southeast New England ahead of Hurricane Jose’s approach to our region.
We are not expecting wide spread damage from Jose but if you are on Cape Cod you will experience the brunt of this storm locally. Heavy rain and sustained winds of 20-30mph with gusts up to 50mph.
If you have decided NOT to work during the height of the storm on Wednesday, we recommend shutting down all of your computer equipment before leaving the office.
Our next weather challenge might be Hurricane Maria – currently a category 5 storm heading into the Caribbean islands over the next few days. We will be following Maria’s development into next week.
