Tropical Storm Philippe Maintains Course in Atlantic; NHC Vigilant on Two Disturbances

Tropical Storm Philippe, the latest addition to this season’s storm roster, continues its westward trek across the Atlantic, prompting the National Hurricane Center (NHC) to closely monitor its progress. Currently situated at a safe distance from any coastal areas, there are no active coastal watches or warnings in effect.

As per the NHC’s latest report, Tropical Storm Philippe is located approximately 1,265 miles east of the Northern Leeward Islands. It sustains maximum winds of 50 mph while moving in a west-northwest direction at a speed of 10 mph. Given its considerable distance from land, there is no immediate cause for alarm among coastal communities.

The future path of Tropical Storm Philippe remains uncertain, with forecast models yielding inconclusive results. Some models suggest gradual strengthening over the next week, while others indicate potential weakening. To provide timely updates and maintain preparedness, 10 Tampa Bay’s Hurricane Headquarters will continue to monitor and report on the storm’s developments.

Over the weekend, Tropical Storm Ophelia brought heavy rainfall and gusty winds to eastern North Carolina and portions of the East Coast. However, Ophelia has since weakened into a remnant low, prompting the NHC to cease regular updates.

In a different part of the Atlantic, a low-pressure system is forming several hundred miles southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands. This expansive region of showers and thunderstorms has the potential to evolve into a tropical depression by mid-week, carrying an 80 percent chance of development within the next seven days.

Meanwhile, in the Gulf of Mexico, the NHC is keeping a watchful eye on an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms in the southeastern quadrant of the Gulf. Forecasts for this disturbance suggest slow development, if any, over the coming week, with only a low 10 percent chance of it intensifying into a depression.

As the hurricane season progresses, the NHC continues to provide vital information and updates to ensure the safety and preparedness of communities in potentially affected areas. Stay tuned for further developments on these weather systems as the NHC closely monitors their progress.
