 DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK ------------------------------ At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Jose was located near latitude 25.2 North, longitude 67.3 West. Jose is moving toward the west-northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue through Friday, followed by a turn to the northwest on Saturday.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts.  Some restrengthening is forecast to begin on Friday, and Jose will likely become a hurricane again by the weekend.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 989 mb (29.21 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.
