Tropical Storm Jose brings high winds, power outages

High temps near 77 on Long Island expected

High temps near 77 on Long Island expected

In its 5 a.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center said Jose was about 150 miles southeast of Nantucket, Mass., and 330 miles nearly due east from New York City.

Mired in a stagnant steering pattern, Tropical Storm Jose or its remnants are likely to meander and swirl over the cool waters off the Mid-Atlantic or New England states for many days.

Tropical Storm Jose is losing strength, but marching on.

The storm, now about 200 miles south-southeast of Montauk Point as of early Wednesday morning, had dropped intensity to about 65 mph.

As of 5 a.m. Wednesday Jose was a tropical storm with maximum sustained winds around 65 miles per hour.

Gmail Turns Addresses And Phone Numbers Into Links In The New Update
One of the most annoying things about Gmail for many users has been its inability to hyperlink addresses ad phone numbers. This otherwise requires you to specifically copy the phone number and pasting it in the phone app to make a call.

Jose wasn't moving much, however, and that is a trend that is expected to continue into next week.

Winds were reported to be blowing at 20 miles per hour with gusts up to 30 miles per hour Wednesday evening. This will contribute to life-threatening rip currents in some locations.

The combination of wind shear, progressively lower ocean-heat content as Jose departs the Gulf Stream and drier air weakened it to a tropical storm Tuesday evening, and Jose is expected to become a non-tropical low-pressure system later this week.

"Gradual weakening is forecast during the next couple of days", the National Hurricane Center said.

Wednesday night through Thursday, portions of coastal southeast New England may see bands of rain, possibly heavy at times.
