MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Hurricane Maria regain major hurricane strength Thursday, but it is unlikely to reach the same magnitude of strength as it did in the Caribbean.  Maria, with highest winds of 120 mph late Thursday afternoon, is moving northwest and expected to go on a more northerly track through the weekend.  The forecast keeps the core of the storm off the U.S. eastern seaboard while undergoing a gradual weakening trend.

Tropical Storm Jose is stationary in the western Atlantic and will meander off the coast of southern New England as it loses strength over the next few days.

The remnant cloud field associated with the former Tropical Storm Lee is situated in the open central North Atlantic waters and has next to no chance to regain an organized level of strength.

There are no other points of interest over the next few days in the Atlantic basin.
