The storm will pass between Bermuda, the Bahamas and the southern Atlantic Seaboard as it tracks to the west, northwest and then north into next week.
However, Irma is expected to fizzle out over land while Hurricane Jose will make a loop before moving west again.
Swells generated by Jose were affecting Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the Southeast coast of the United States, and will spread northward along the Mid-Atlantic coast of the US during the next few days. The cone includes the New Jersey coastline, Long Island, most of CT and MA and all of Rhode Island.
The forecast could change, but Jose could also bring Nor'easter-like conditions with wind and rain to New York City Monday night into Tuesday, and for Boston Tuesday into Wednesday.
The official forecast track from the hurricane center puts Jose as a strong tropical storm Wednesday 225 miles southeast of NY. The National Hurricane Center said Jose was expected to pass well offshore of North Carolina early next week, though strong winds could approach the Outer Banks. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the depression's maximum sustained winds are near 35 miles per hour and it's forecast to strengthen to a tropical storm later in the day or on Saturday.
South Africa batsman JP Duminy announces retirement from Test cricket
Duminy's illustrious nine-year Test career ends with tally of 2,103 runs at 32.85 off 46 matches. His last Test was the series opener against England at Lord's earlier this year.
You can track the storm here.
But the window for intensification looks to last the weekend only.
Jose could be swept completely out to sea by a non-tropical system, passing between Bermuda, the Northeast coast and Atlantic Canada.
"Jose could produce other direct impacts next week along portions of the east coast of the United States from North Carolina northward to New England, but it is too soon to determine what those impacts might be or where they could occur", the hurricane center said.
The next names for tropical storms in the Atlantic Basin are Lee and Maria. Two major hurricanes, Harvey and Irma, have made landfall in the United States already this year.
