The 13th named storm, Tropical Storm Maria has formed 620 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

Unfortunately it is expected to stay over warm water, stay in light shear, stay in a moist atmosphere. So it is expected to intensify. It is heading for the Leeward Islands and the Virgin Islands.

Watches have been issued. These areas may be affected starting Monday afternoon. The longer range models do keep it well east of Florida.

Southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is Tropical Storm Lee with winds of 40 mph.

Hurricane Jose has not changed much. Hurricane hunters indicate that the pressure has lowered, but it has expanded some, so the intensity is the same. Shear will increase in the next day or so, which should cause some weakening.

It will cause swells and rip currents along the U.S. east coast, as it moves north. Seas have increased today on the east coast of Florida.

Tropical Storm Lee is in the Eastern Atlantic and will battle shear as it moves WNW. It will not affect land.
