Tropical storm conditions are also possible in St. Martin and Sint
Maarten beginning on Saturday.

For storm information specific to your area, please monitor
products issued by your national meteorological service.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located
near latitude 15.5 North, longitude 52.4 West. Jose is moving toward
the west-northwest near 18 mph (30 km/h). The hurricane is expected
to continue on this heading with a slight decrease in forward speed
during the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 km/h) with higher
gusts. Jose is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson
Hurricane Wind Scale. Some additional strengthening is possible
during the next 24 to 36 hours.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles
(185 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 966 mb (28.53 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND: Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch
area on Saturday, and tropical storm conditions are possible within
the hurricane watch and tropical storm watch areas by Saturday
morning.

RAINFALL: Jose is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
2 to 6 inches in the Leeward Islands from Dominica to Anguilla.
Isolated maximum amounts of 10 inches are possible in the northern
Leeward Islands from Antigua and Barbuda to Anguilla. This rainfall
will maintain any ongoing flooding and may cause additional
life-threatening flooding.

SURF: Swells generated by Jose are likely to affect portions of
the Leeward Islands by Saturday. These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult
products from your local weather office.
