Jose update: Wind and rain, especially at the shore, beginning Tuesday

Strongest gust expected is 45 m.p.h. at shore, along with rain

Weather Tropical Storm

Jose is a mild Category 1 hurricane. Because it is expected to pass well to the east of the New Jersey coast, the storm's impact will be limited with winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusts of up to 45 miles per hour along the coast on Tuesday. Milder winds will prevail inland. The region will also get rain, but not a huge amount, perhaps an inch.

A tropical storm watch is in effect for coastal New Jersey from Cape May to Monmouth counties.

Hurricane Jose is a Category 1 storm with winds of 85 miles per hour and is expected to remain out to sea until it makes its way to Cape Cod. Peak winds at the Jersey Shore are expected to be 25 to 35 miles an hour with gusts of up to 45 mph beginning Tuesday.
