Advance forecasts have raised the possibility that Hurricane Jose, a Category One storm, could threaten New York and New Jersey over the coming ten days.
Advance forecasts have raised the possibility that Hurricane Jose could threaten New York in the coming week.
The Category One hurricane's probable path revealed New York City may be pummeled with heavy rain and winds.
According to the Washington Post, based off a European mode, there is a possibility of the Fujiwara Effect where Hurricane Jose and Tropical Storm Maria could appear to 'dance.'
Based off of projections, they storms could pinwheel around each other and slam into New Jersey which was hit by Sandy in 2012.
The cyclone stays inside the cone to projected trajectory 60-70 percent of the time. At this point the maximum sustained winds are at 80 mph. It is projected to remain a hurricane at least through Monday night.
By Tuesday as it approaches New York, winds are expected to be between 39-73 mph according to the National Hurricane Center.
An Air Force hurricane hunter plane investigated the storm earlier on Saturday.

'Interests from North Carolina northward to New England on the east coast of the United States should monitor the progress of this system,' the NHC said in a flash bulletin on Saturday.
'Tropical storm watches may be needed for portions of this area during the next day or two,' the agency said.
Up and down the coast from New York to Florida, there are already rip current advisories in effect, with officials warning that rough surf and waves generated by Jose could make beach activities hazardous.Read more at dailymail.co.uk
