Tropical Storm Jose as of 2100 UTC (5PM EDT) on Sept. 14th was moving towards the west-northwest at 7 knots over the western North Atlantic with a max wind of about 60 knots. Jose is moving over an area that favors some strengthening during the next 72 hours and should regain hurricane strength as a Cat. 1-2 hurricane.

Jose should turn northwestward by Saturday and northward by early Monday while it moves around a ridge over the western Atlantic Ocean staying off the US East Coast, however, there is some indication that the forecast track could be adjusted farther west.
