 DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located near latitude 25.1 North, longitude 66.5 West. Jose is moving toward the west near 3 mph (6 km/h).  A turn toward the northwest with an increase in forward speed is expected later today.
Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher gusts.  Little change in strength is forecast during the several days, but Jose could weaken to a Tropical Storm by Friday.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km).
The estimated minimum central pressure is 986 mb (29.12 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF:  Swells generated by Jose are 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 U.S. during the next few days.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  For more information, please consult products from your local weather office.
