Tropical Storm Philippe Forms

A tropical disturbance in the west Caribbean may become a tropical depression or tropical storm this week. Should pose no Gulf Coast threat

Tropical Storm Philippe formed Saturday afternoon north of Cuba in the Florida Straits.

The National Hurricane Center said Air Force Reserve Reconnaissance Aircraft found a well-defined low-level circulation center, and has upgraded the disturbance to depression status. The center forecast about 2 to 4 inches of rain with higher localized accumulations in South Florida. The system is helping to pull a tropical air mass in our direction from the south, keeping rain and overcast sky conditions in place through tonight. The ground is saturated and can't handle much additional rain.

For other areas of Florida, Philippe could bring bigger impacts.

With the current forecast track, Southwest Florida will remain on the west side of the storm and avoid the strongest winds and severe weather associated with Philippe.

A high wind watch is up for nearly all of New England.

Selma is about 80 miles (130 km) south-southeast of San Salvador where it is packing winds of 40 mph (65 kph), the hurricane center said in an advisory. The storm was moving north at 29 miles per hour.
