 The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
 Storm Jose, located a couple of hundred miles south of Nantucket,

 Satellite data indicate that the remnants of Lee, located about
 1000 miles east of the Leeward Islands, have become less organized

 day or two.  This low is expected to move northward over the central
 Atlantic Ocean during the next few days.
