MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) --  Jose returned to hurricane strength late Friday afternoon in the western Atlantic Ocean, about 640 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras.  It is forecast to turn more to the north through the weekend in the western Atlantic, where it will likely travel over a warmer patch of water as it parallels the mid-Atlantic coast.  Some impacts for the mid-Atlantic, Delmarva, New York/New Jersey coasts, and southern New England are possible before the storm re-curves to the northeast early next week.

Tropical Depression Fourteen is in the Cape Verde region of the eastern Atlantic, with potential to develop into the season's latest tropical storm this weekend while traveling west-northwest.  Early next week, it is forecast to run into a zone of faster upper wind shear, limiting its chances to sustain and strengthening trend by then.

Another tropical wave to the west of Tropical Depression Fourteen has an increased chance for future development a few hundred miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

The next names to be used in the Atlantic Basin this season are Lee and Maria.
