The wind and the rain will be strongest and heaviest at the coast with inland areas experiencing less of both. Updates to position and track will have an impact on the forecast for the rain and wind in Nova Scotia. In addition, large waves are expected to cause severe beach erosion to our coast and a small storm surge is expected at the time of high tide tonight.

Rainfall of 3 to 5 inches is expected over eastern Long Island, southeast CT, southern Rhode Island, and southeast MA, including Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket through Wednesday.

Watch NBC10 News Live at 4 in the video embedded above to track the storms. Sustained winds of more than 70 miles per hour are possible.

Wind and rain are expected to move into our area Tuesday morning and possibly last into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Maximum gusts expected include 34 mph for Stamford, Norwalk, Bridgeport and New Haven; 23 mph for Greenwich and 27 mph in Danbury and Torrington.

If a tropical rain band pushes through New Jersey, we'll see rainfall totals between 1 and 3 inches. Areas in eastern CT along the shoreline will get between.60 of an inch in Clinton and.87 of an inch in New London.

Clouds from Jose will thicken Monday night, and some showers will show up over coastal southern Maine Tuesday afternoon or evening, then move north and west.

Flooding is expected to increase tonight, September 18, through Tuesday night, September 19 around the times of high tide.

High tides are 11 a.m. on Tuesday, shortly after midnight on Wednesday and after noon on Wednesday.

NWS has issued a coastal flood advisory, which will be in effect from 6 p.m. September 18 to 1 a.m. September 20.

Marine and coastal effects, including 34-63 knot winds and 20-30 foot seas, could pose risky conditions for mariners.

Conditions in the eastern Long Island Sound get rougher with a stronger winds and waves up to seven feet near The Race. Highs remain in the upper 70s in the mountains and low to mid 80s along 81 and counties East of I-81. Northeast winds 20 to 25 miles per hour. The next chance of rain may not arrive until the middle of next week in the form of a scattered shower or thunderstorm. Many other weather models are farther east, bringing us even less of a chance for showers. Breezy with lows in the mid 60s. By then Jose won't be anything more than a weakening tropical storm. Tomorrow will be humid, but high temperatures will be limited to 70-75 due to rain and overcast conditions. Most predictions are for general rainfall amounts of 10 to 20 millimetres, which is manageable by our standards in the province. Lows in the lower 60s.
