"Hurricane Statement" This product covers southeast New York, northeast New Jersey, and southern Connecticut **jose weakens to a tropical storm, a tropical storm remains in effect for Suffolk county** New information --------------- * changes to watches and warnings: - none * current watches and warnings: - a tropical storm watch is in effect for northeastern Suffolk, northwestern Suffolk, southeastern Suffolk, and southwestern Suffolk * storm information: - about 260 miles southeast of New York City NY or about 230 miles south-southeast of Montauk Point NY - 37.9n 70.8w - storm intensity 70 mph - movement northeast or 40 degrees at 9 mph Situation overview ------------------ Tropical Storm Jose will continue to track slowly north and then northeast later tonight, passing to the southeast of the area. The system will be close enough for potential impacts. The main hazard will be coastal flooding with 1 to 2 feet of inundation expected during the times of high tide through Wednesday morning. Localized inundation of up to around 2 1/2 feet is possible in the typically more vulnerable locations across Peconic and gardiners bays. Dangerous surf will build to 7 to 13 feet through Wednesday. This will result in widespread dune erosion and washovers. Tropical storm force winds are possible into Wednesday morning with sustained winds of 30 to 40 mph and gusts up to 45 mph. Potential impacts ----------------- * shoreline hazards: prepare for dangerous surf of 7 to 13 ft causing widespread dune erosion, and localized dune overwashes along the Atlantic beachfront. * Surge: prepare for locally hazardous surge having possible limited impacts across Suffolk County. Potential impacts in this area include: - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots. - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where surge water covers the Road. - Widespread beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes, mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong and frequent rip currents. * Wind: prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts. Potential impacts include: - possible tree limbs broken off. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. Elsewhere across southeast New York, northeast New Jersey, and southern Connecticut, little to no impact is anticipated. Precautionary/preparedness actions ---------------------------------- If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind, such as a Mobile home, a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you and your family for several days. If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as near the ocean, in a low lying or poor drainage area, or near an already swollen river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the forecast. * Additional sources of information: - for information on appropriate preparations see ready.Gov - for information on creating an emergency plan see getagameplan.Org - for additional disaster preparedness information see Redcross.Org Next update ----------- The next local statement will be issued by the National Weather Service in New York NY around 6 am EDT, or sooner if conditions warrant.
