Tropical storm nears Caribbean islands, expected to become Hurricane Maria

Tropical Storm Maria has formed in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Lee formed over the eastern Atlantic and Tropical Storm Maria could approach the Lesser Antilles as a hurricane early next week.

A host of Caribbean islands - some of them slammed by Hurricane Irma last week - began the 48-hour countdown to Hurricane Maria as the storm's winds increased overnight, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Maria is expected to strengthen and affect portions of the Leeward Islands as a hurricane early this week, bringing risky wind, storm surge and rainfall hazards. By mid-week the hurricane "Maria" can be powerful and risky and to reach the virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

Winds and rain from Hurricane Jose could impact Cape Cod and southeastern MA late Wednesday and early Thursday, according to the latest weather forecast.

Tropical storm watches for this system have been issued for St. Lucia, Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe.

Only Jose, which was moving north at about 8 miles per hour on Sunday morning, is expected to impact North Carolina's coast, though its threat remains rather low.

Tropical Storm Maria has formed in the Atlantic

The busy 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season is showing no signs of slowing down, with three named storms to track: Jose, Lee and Maria.

However, the NHC says the category 1 storm could bring rain and wind to the northeastern United States later this week.

The hurricane Jose was about 480 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina on Saturday moving northwest at 9 mph with sustained winds of 80 mph.

On its current path, PTC #15 - or what will likely become Maria - will most likely move toward areas previously hit by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Jose, including Barbuda, Antigua and Puerto Rico, later this week.

Jose became a Category 1 hurricane again on Friday, and continues to retain its strength. This storm will affect from Virginia to New England in the coming days. At this point, it's too early to tell if Jose will have direct impacts farther north along the east coast. "Other the past couple of days, the European model has been here, here and here".
