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.


  • Into Early Tuesday: Rain and gusty winds could brush parts of the coastal mid-Atlantic from Long Island to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
  • Tuesday-Tuesday night: Southeast New England will be affected by gusty winds. Tropical-storm-force winds may begin by Tuesday night in southeast New England. Some bands of rain may wrap as far north as southern Maine.
  • Wednesday: Portions of coastal New England may see bands of rain, possibly heavy at times. Tropical-storm-force winds are most possible on Nantucket Island, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod and Rhode Island.


  • Wind: Some power outages and tree damage cannot be ruled out along the immediate coast, particularly in southeast New England on Wednesday.
  • Rainfall:Jose is expected to produce total rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches through Wednesday over eastern Long Island, southeast Connecticut, southern Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts, including Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

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.
