**jose remains stationary... gradually weakens with time**

New information
---------------

* changes to watches and warnings:
    - none

* current watches and warnings:
    - a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Barnstable MA, Block
      Island RI, Dukes MA, and Nantucket MA

* storm information:
    - about 160 miles southeast of Nantucket MA
    - 39.6n 67.9w
    - storm intensity 50 mph
    - movement stationary

Situation overview
------------------

Jose remains a very low-end tropical storm with a peak intensity around
50 mph. Latest updates suggest that Jose will continue to weaken into
the weekend, may become Post tropical by tomorrow, and will remain
nearly stationary through tomorrow. However, recent trends suggest it
may begin to pull to the southeast by tomorrow night.

Bands of rainfall will once again wrap into portions of southern New
England overnight into tomorrow, with the heaviest rain expected on
Nantucket and Cape Cod, although flooding is generally not anticipated.
High surf will also remain a threat through the early weekend due to
continued swells from Jose.

The strongest winds will occur through the overnight hours tonight
with gusts to 60 mph on Nantucket and 45 to 55 on Cape Cod and Marthas
Vineyard. Minor coastal flooding is possible through the Friday high
tide cycle, with pockets of moderate flooding possible on Nantucket.
Significant beach erosion is expected to accompany these tide cycles as
well. The marine community will continue to feel the highest impacts
with life- threatening conditions continuing on the coastal waters
southeast of New England through tomorrow, with seas up to 20 feet and
tropical storm force wind gusts.


Potential impacts
-----------------

* surge:
protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts, especially on Nantucket through the Friday mid day high tide

Potential impacts in these ares include:
    - localized inundation with storm surge flooding mainly along
      immediate shorelines and in low-lying spots.
    - Sections of near-shore roads and parking lots become overspread
      with surge water. Driving conditions dangerous in places where
      surge water covers the Road.
    - Significant beach erosion. Heavy surf also breaching dunes,
      mainly in usually vulnerable locations. Strong rip currents.

* Other coastal hazards:
high surf will continue to impact area beaches and coastlines. Severe
beach erosion is expected with protective dunes at risk for being
overtopped or washed away. Dangerous rip currents can be expected along
with high surf which could catch unsuspecting wave watchers off guard.
The peak for beach erosion will occur over the next few tide cycles
into tomorrow. The threat for beach erosion, high surf and dangerous
rip currents is expected to linger into the weekend, with a chance for
it to last until early next week.

* Wind:
peak wind gusts are ongoing, and will continue into the overnight hours
before beginning to dissipate slowly. Winds will remain gusty tomorrow,
but with gusts generally lower than today although high enough for
spotty tree damage to continue. Winds diminish further still by
Saturday. The strongest winds through tomorrow will be over Cape Cod
and Nantucket.

Potential impacts include:
    - some tree limbs or even whole trees will be snapped or uprooted.
    - Some roads impassable from large debris especially in heavily
      wooded places.
    - Scattered power and communications outages.


Precautionary/preparedness actions
----------------------------------

* evacuations:
evacuations are unlikely with this event. However, you should be
prepared to follow any local instructions from emergency management
officials.

    - Block Island

* wind
    - latest local forecast: below tropical storm force wind
        - peak wind forecast: 20-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph

    - current threat to life and property: elevated
        - the wind threat has remained nearly steady from the
          previous assessment.
        - Emergency plans should include a reasonable threat for

        - To be safe, prepare for the potential of limited wind
          impacts. Remaining efforts to secure properties should now
          be brought to completion.
        - Hazardous wind is possible. Failure to adequately shelter
          may result in serious injury. Move to safe shelter before
          the wind becomes hazardous.

    - Potential impacts: limited
