While Jose was driving hurricane-force winds for 25 miles from its core, the National Hurricane Center said Jose could weaken to a tropical storm by Friday.

NHC probabilities show a 20% chance of tropical storm conditions from Jose along the NJ Coast.

After Harvey and Irma, many people are wondering if Jose could pose another threat to the United States. It's now about 500 miles south southwest of Bermuda and is expected to strengthen back into a hurricane later Friday, and intensify more over the weekend, according to the latest advisory. The forecast is for Jose to peak at 85 miles per hour winds on Sunday and stay at 80-85 miles per hour through day 5. The system will be over very warm water, and it could gain some strength and become a hurricane again over the weekend.

"Farther north along the USA east coast, it is too soon to determine if any other direct impacts from Jose will occur", National Hurricane Center spokesperson Dennis Feltgen said. Jose could develop into a hurricane later today, and could reach hurricane Category 2 or 3 status by Tuesday, Accuweather said.

Both of those will continue to move. Either way, the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts should prepare for increased swells and strong winds as Jose skims by next week.

Jose, the tropical storm now meandering through the Atlantic Ocean, is expected to produce high surf and life-threatening rip currents along parts of the East Coast over the next few days, the National Hurricane Center says. That direction is expected to take a north northwest track by Sunday.

The National Hurricane Center's "cone of uncertainty"-the area in which a storm is predicted to wind up-currently shows Jose staying in the Atlantic basin through Saturday". Barbuda and Antigua, which were devastated by Hurricane Irma last week, fortunately escaped most of the worst of Jose.

Little effect from Jose is expected west of the Hudson Valley. "While the track is not set in stone, it could move northward toward the Baja Peninsula or western Mexico late in the weekend".
