The system is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 5 to 10 inches with isolated maximum amounts of 15 inches across portions of the central and southern Leeward Islands through Tuesday night.
SUMMARY: Tropical Depression Fifteen has intensified and has become Tropical Storm Maria. A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for St. Lucia, Martinique and Guadeloupe, Dominica, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Hurricane Jose is maintaining its strength as a Category 1 hurricane as it turns slightly north. The storm was 260 miles (420 kilometers) south of Cabo San Lucas.
No matter its path, Jose's ocean swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions in Bermuda, the Bahamas, the northern coasts of Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, and the US Southeast, the hurricane center said.
Hurricane Jose continued to meander off the coast on Saturday, spinning about 500 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. But, as of now, it's those from North Carolina, Virginia up to New Jersey and Long Island that should be eyeing up this storm.
