For the north Atlantic Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico the National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on tropical storm Ophelia located about 65 miles west-northwest of cape race Newfoundland and on tropical storm Philippe located about 745 miles southeast of Bermuda.
Elsewhere tropical cyclone formation is not expected during the next 48 hours.
Reported by NWS
Philippe refuses to weaken despite very strong wind shear. It will likely weaken some over the next 48 hours.
Beyond that time frame, Philippe will be in a more favorable area for development, so it could re-strengthen some by the middle of the week.
For now, Philippe will pose no threat to land as it churns over the open waters of the Atlantic.
