As expected, Jose made the turn toward the east overnight and also was downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm.

The tropical storm warning from Hull to Plymouth has been dropped and replaced with a wind advisory. This wind advisory includes Boston. The tropical storm warning is still posted for Cape Cod and the Islands, where winds could reach over 39 miles per hour.

The wind is going to be the weather feature you will notice today and Thursday, and if you live on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, that wind may still around into the weekend. Although, the gusts will not be as strong by then.

Rainfall will not amount to much around Boston, perhaps as little as a tenth of an inch to three quarters of an inch if an isolated downpour occurred.

Street flooding won't be an issue for most places in this storm. There could be some heavier rainfalls with minor street flooding on Cape Cod today, but even there, the rain will be manageable.

Losing A Lot Of Sand

There will be some beach erosion, especially on those beaches facing the ocean on the outer Cape, the south and east side of Nantucket and the south side of Martha's Vineyard.

Storm Lingers At Coast

Clearing starts to take place on Thursday west of Route 495 in the afternoon and spreads east for Friday. Cape Cod and the Islands may not see sunshine until the weekend as Jose or its remnants remain close enough for clouds there into Friday.

Inland areas will reach the upper 70s Saturday and low to even mid-80s on Sunday. That's quite a summer pattern!

Hurricane Maria Still A Dangerous Storm

Hurricane Maria is hitting Puerto Rico and its islands very hard this morning. The damage from this storm will be terrible, and Maria will continue to move into other parts of the Caribbean today. We will need to watch this storm closely, but present models keep the storm from hitting the United States' mainland.
