And like Irma and Jose, they formed off of Africa's coast and are heading westward.

Tropical Storm Jose now could pass off the New Jersey coast Monday evening into Tuesday, according to updated forecasts from the National Hurricane Center.

This morning, Jose was moving west-northwest at about 8 miles per hour.

The farther north the storm goes, the more likely it is that upper level winds and cooler ocean waters will take a toll on Hurricane Jose's intensity.

"Meanwhile, forecasters are keeping close tabs on two other weather systems, one of which is now Tropical Depression Fourteen and should become Tropical Storm Lee later Friday".

The NHC is predicting a more southerly track for the pair than Hurricane Jose, which seems to be headed into the Atlantic, far from our Irma-battered shores. As of 8 a.m., the winds were sustained at 35 miles per hour. While the storm circulates, a high area of pressure will move around it, and could eventually force it to move west-northwest towards the East Coast, according to the Weather Underground.

The impacts are likely to resemble those of a strong fall nor'easter for the Midcoast with gusty winds, heavy rain, and high surf.

It is expected to become a hurricane again later Friday.

As it parallels the Mid-Atlantic coast, passing Jersey Tuesday or Wednesday, it would be a Category 1 hurricane, with peak winds about 80 miles per hour, the hurricane center says. Coastal areas of DE and New Jersey have the greatest threat for impacts, with coastal flooding potential starting to show up for Monday and beyond.

It's still way too early to know exactly where Jose will end up, but it wouldn't be a bad idea for the United States to get comfortable with another hurricane making landfall. But it weakened after reaching that peak last weekend.
