After weakening to a tropical storm on Thursday, Jose returned to Category 1 hurricane status Friday night.
Hurricane Maria, which formed Saturday, was upgraded to a hurricane with the NHC's 5 p.m. advisory.
The coast will see some higher surf, risky rip currents and possiblly some rain Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Acadia National Park has issued a warning to visitors to keep an eye out for high surf and risky waves.

A tropical storm warning was in effect for the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula due to Norma, which the U.S.
Jose is moving toward the north near 8 miles per hour, and this general motion with a slight increase in forward speed is expected through early Tuesday.
It triggered tropical storm warnings, meaning tropical storm conditions within 36 hours for parts of the peninsula, as the NHC forecasted up to 20 inches of rain in isolated pockets which could "produce life-threatening flash floods".
This includes the coast from DE north to the Cape and islands in MA.
Although Hurricane Jose was moving slowly and far from land, the storm was generating powerful swells that were affecting coastal areas in Bermuda, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the U.S. Southeast.
The closest it's expected to come to land is about 200 miles from Connecticut, Rhode Island and MA on Wednesday, according to the Hurricane Center.
Much of the coast of New England remains in the "cone of uncertainty" for Jose, so a graze or strike is still possible.
Minimal damaging wind is expected. But coastal areas can expect to see storm surge and beach erosion, gusty winds and very risky rip currents. "The biggest implication will be multiple days of big surf and probably beach erosion".
"The biggest threat that we're most confident in is the waves and high surf that'll be a result of it", he said.
Maria became a hurricane Sunday afternoon.
A northwestward movement is expected to continue as it becomes Hurricane Maria early next week.
The storm is expected to bring heavy rainfall and flooding as it moves over parts of the Lesser Antilles and could create similar impacts for the storm-torn Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by mid week, weather authorities said.
