Jose, previously a hurricane, has weakened into a tropical storm, but is still likely to bring dangerous surf and rip currents along the US East Coast for several more days, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday.

The tropical storm is about 230 miles (375 km) south of Nantucket, Massachusetts, with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km per hour), the NHC said.

"The center of the storm is expected to pass well to the east of the New Jersey coast on Wednesday, and pass offshore of southeastern Massachusetts by Thursday," the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

The storm is likely to gradually weaken over the next two days, the NHC said.
