Jose threatens rip currents, flooding off New Jersey coast

Tropical Storm Jose is losing strength, but marching on.

Jose wasn't moving much, however, and that is a trend that is expected to continue into next week.

Wind Advisories and Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect for parts of Southern New England.

Winds were reported to be blowing at 20 miles per hour with gusts up to 30 miles per hour Wednesday evening.

Jose's center has turned toward the northeast but will later stall and slowly drift westward or west-southwestward late this week as a post-tropical low-pressure system well southeast of Nantucket Island.

Coastal communities in Brooklyn and Queens are bracing for the impacts of Jose.
