Hurricane Maria, which formed Saturday, was upgraded to a hurricane with the NHC's 5 p.m. advisory. Winds will be NE 15-25 miles per hour.

Jose could bring rain and wind to the US Northeast early next week.

Tropical storm watches are posted for Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, Dominica and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Tropical Storm Maria is forecast to continue west-northwest over the next couple days, with the center nearing the Leeward Islands on Monday night.

Officials in the Dominican Republic urged people to leave areas prone to flooding and said fishermen should remain in port.

Parts of western CT are no longer under tropical storm watches as Jose continues to move north over the Atlantic, churning up unsafe surf and rip currents along the East Coast. "Again, Jose is the initial situation that we are monitoring but right behind it is storm Maria", he said.

Meteorologists say Jose could produce direct impacts next week from North Carolina northward to New England. Forecasters said the storm was weakening and its center was likely to remain offshore. That area was hit two weeks ago by Tropical Storm Lidia, which flooded streets and homes and killed at least four people.

Tropical Storm Lee has formed far from land, moving west of the Cabo Verde Islands at 12 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour, the National Hurricane Center said Saturday.

The Baja California Sur state government readied storm shelters and canceled classes for Monday as well as calling off a Mexican Independence Day military parade in the state capital, La Paz. Lee formed Saturday in the eastern Atlantic and is moving westward.
