Hurricane Maria stays strong, Lee redevelops

Hurricane Maria stays strong, Lee redevelops

Maria is moving toward the north-northwest near 9 miles per hour (15 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through tonight. Maria is now sitting to the east of the Bahamas, with a slow north northwest movement.

In the coming days Maria is expected to slow down as it runs into the blocking upper level ridge over the northeastern USA causing the storm to gradually weaken to a category 1 hurricane as it slides by the Outer Banks of North Carolina Wednesday afternoon.

And now the what ifs: The forecast track for the storm has shifted westward as of Saturday morning and could shift even more to the west, according to forecasters. Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion.

Tropical Storm Lee is a small storm and no threat to land.

A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area.




Forecasts suggest if a storm then forms it could pummel Britain with a potent mixture of heavy rain and strong winds.

The tropical storm warning applies only to offshore waters and does not extend all the way to shore.

On Friday, the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Jose was located near latitude 39.7 North, longitude 68.7 West, about 125 miles southeast of Nantucket, Massachusetts with maximum sustained winds at 50 mph.

Forecasters have said that the lingering presence of Jose could help pull Maria out to sea or, if Jose weakens enough, direct it toward shore, depending on how the storms might be affected by two high pressure systems - one over the Great Lakes and another further out in the Atlantic. The low was expected to move northward over the central Atlantic Ocean during the next few days, and there is a 10 percent chance of development over the next five days.
