A tropical storm watch was issued over the weekend for southern CT, but it was canceled at 11 a.m. on Tuesday.

Wind shear continues to affect Jose's inner-core convection, giving it a less-than-classic tropical storm appearance in infrared satellite imagery.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect along the MA coast from Woods Hole to Sagamore Beach and includes Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

The hurricane center said Jose will lose its steering currents and meander off the southeast coast of New England for the next several days until it dissipates.

Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) bought shares to the tune of Rs 946.23 crore yesterday, according to provisional data. Sun Pharma , Hindustan Unilever, PowerGrid and ICICI Bank were also on the losing side, falling by up to 1.96 per cent.

A wind gust of 48 miles per hour was reported this morning at the Nantucket Airport. Forecasters said Jose could lose its tropical characteristics and become post-tropical as soon as tonight. The center of the storm was approximately 165miles south of Nantucket moving northeast at 8mph.

Jose is a large system with tropical-storm-force winds extending outward up to 230 miles from the center, resulting in far-reaching impacts. Locally higher rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches are possible on Nantucket. While the weekend forecast calls for sun and warm temperatures, with Jose mingling off the coast there is the threat of unsafe rip currents.

The National Weather Service expects widespread roadway flooding through Wednesday, with the Tuesday early evening high tide expected to be the most impactful with moderate flooding levels.
