Hurricane Jose is expected to weaken to a tropical storm as the storm nears New England.

This system is forecast to strengthen into a tropical storm by Saturday evening.

New York City is in the so-called "cone of uncertainty" for Jose - and could be impacted by the tropical storm next week, according to a recent projection from the National Weather Service.
