Hurricane Jose is maintaining strength and is forecast to be located near the northern Leeward Islands on Saturday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

The Category 3 Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale is about 635 miles (1,020 km) east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands, packing maximum sustained winds of 120 miles per hour (195 kph), the NHC said on Thursday.

Some slight strengthening is possible during the next day or so, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
