Watching two tropical systems closely this week, Jose & Maria

My Pocket Meteorologist text alerts will not only provide you with advanced notice of incoming storm threats, but will also provide real-time alerts for thunderstorms approaching the specific area that you live and/or work. Real-time alerts will take the guessing game of what to expect for what’s headed your way, sent by an ACTUAL METEOROLOGIST, not a computer or an app. This includes start/end times and duration of that specific storm, lightning threats, total rain, wind and gusts, hail (size) and tornadoes (if applicable). Things that neither an app nor a radar can tell you. We’re here to do the work, so that you don’t have to… and you can always stay ahead of the storms with safety and peace of mind.

Summary: 

Jose is expected to remain largely offshore, with coastal fringe impacts possible to NJ/DE coasts. 

Maria will be a concern down the line, and depending on what Jose does will dictate the eventual path of Maria. In the near term, Maria will affect the US Virgin Islands, followed by Puerto Rico. The forecast afterwards is tricky, and will depend on Jose and if it in fact lingers as modeled. If Jose lingers, it provides an escape route to the NE and away from the US eastern seaboard, but if it escapes, and a ridge can build in, and Maria could affect somewhere on the east coast. We will know the eventuality of Maria toward the end of the week once we can see what Jose does in the nearer term.

Impacts and Timing:

Impacts/timing of Jose is Tuesday, September 19th to coastal regions mainly of NJ and DE. 

In order of likelihood of impacts, the following could impact those regions:

  1. Rip currents to coastal beaches – threat HIGH
  2. Beach erosion – threat MODERATELY HIGH
  3. Tropical storm force wind gusts 40mph+ – threat MODERATELY LOW
  4. Heavy rain >1″ along coastal regions – threat MODERATELY LOW
