Hurricane José may not directly hit the metro area, but it's still set to pack a wallop in the region. Windy and rainy conditions will likely continue into Wednesday, with a 40 percent chance of rain and 18-26 miles per hour winds expected. Coastal wave heights are expected to top out at 5 feet.
"If you know that you tend to be vulnerable and in a space that floods during storms, take the necessary precautions, " Morrone warned.
Hurricane Jose is on a track toward the East Coast Tuesday, and while the storm is expected to remain offshore, Staten Island will still experience rain, wind and possible coastal flooding. The advisory is now in effect until 7 p.m. Tuesday. Winds there will likely be out of the north at 25 to 35mph with gusts to 45mph much of Monday through early Tuesday.
Eastern Long Island is expected to get showered by up to 3 inches of rain in the first half of the week.
Almost an inch of rain is expected to douse the city on Wednesday, too.
The Peninsula is under a small craft advisory along the Chesapeake Bay as a result of Hurricane Jose passing the area the mid-Atlantic, as it heads up to places such as DE and New Jersey, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Wayne Albright.
The trajectory may still change, but it is not expected to make landfall.
Meanwhile in the Caribbean, areas already battered by Hurricane Irma are now threatened by the newly formed Hurricane Maria.
