Despite being downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, Jose is continuing to bring tropical storm conditions to southeastern New England, particularly Massachusetts.
According to the latest update from the National Hurricane Center, Post-Tropical Cyclone Jose still has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and, despite the fact that the center of the system remains 115 miles south-southeast of Nantucket, is bringing tropical storm-force winds to an area of up to 22 miles from the center. A tropical storm warning remains in effect for an area ranging from Woods Hole to Sagamore Beach, including Cape Cod, as well as Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Jose is expected to weaken gradually over the next 48 hours, and meander well off the coast of New England for the next several days. The storm will continue to generate dangerous surf and rip currents on the U.S. east coast and Bermuda for the next couple of days, as well as bring additional rainfall across Cape Cod and the offshore islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket through early Saturday.
Just a friendly reminder, you need to call your airline (not the airport) to determine if your airline is operating during bad weather!— Nantucket Airport (@AirportACK) September 21, 2017
According to the latest update on FlightStats.com, many flights from Nantucket Memorial Airport have been cancelled or delayed, although others remain on the schedule. On its official Twitter account the airport is advising passengers to check with their airline for the latest updates on their flights.
