Jose Still Causing Rough Seas, Wind in New England; Maria Moving North

Jose moved eastward Thursday before becoming stationary about 150 miles southeast of Nantucket. It will soon turn back around, where it will remain a remnant low as it travels west, allowing for battering surf and rough seas through at least Friday night.

The storm will back west, but will stay about 150 miles south and slowly weaken.

Expect wind gusts to continue to remain the same through Thursday with gusts nearing 50 to 60 mph for Nantucket, 50 for the Cape and 30 to 40 mph for Boston to Providence, Rhode Island. Windy with gusts near 25 to 30 for Worcester and areas northwest away from the coast.

After a foggy start, Thursday brings another windy day, with rain still hugging the Cape and Islands. Skies try to brighten for most of western New England, as far east as Worcester by the late afternoon, otherwise remaining mostly cloudy.

The first day of Fall Friday brings highs into the upper 60s with a slight chance for a passing shower. Saturday starts off cloudy and then, partly sunny by the late afternoon, highs into the lower 70s. Sunday and Monday brings a taste of summer back into the region with 80s away from the coast, upper 70s closest to the coast.

We turn cooler, cloudy with a chance for rain Tuesday through Thursday of next week. This could be associated with the remnants of Hurricane Maria as she makes her way north parallel to the eastern seaboard.

After Hurricane Maria made landfall on the southeastern side of Puerto Rico last night as a Category 4, she has been downgraded to a Category 2, but is expected to brush the eastern edge of the Turks and Caicos Islands as a Category 3 before heading due north by Saturday.

We will continue to keep an eye on the latest on Maria, as she could bring some showers to our area by midweek of next week.
