EAST ORANGE, NJ - New Jersey residents may want to check the weather to the track the path of Tropical Storm Jose. A forecast map that was issued this morning by the National Hurricane Center has the state on the outer edges of its possible path. Tropical Storm Jose could strengthen as it heads north through the Atlantic.

The system is still days away from its center being hundreds of miles off the coast of New Jersey, forecasters say, it’s likely that the state will be affected in some way by the storm.

Depending on the track of Jose over the next few days, its arrival off the coast will coincide with high tides on Monday and Tuesday night and the risk of coastal flooding will be at its highest, according to the National Weather Service’s office in New Jersey.
