Would-be Philippe to skim South Florida, some strong storms possible

Potential Tropical Cyclone Eighteen could become Philippe on Saturday

The National Hurricane Center advised that Tropical Storm Philippe had formed over Cuba, with a forecast track towards South Florida and into the Atlantic.

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. This storm should become better organized and will likely strengthen into Tropical Storm Philippe later Saturday.

A tropical storm warning is now in effect for the Cuban provinces of Isla de la Juventud, La Habana, Ciudad de la Habana, Matanzas, Cienfuegos and Villa Clara.


This morning forecasters do not think a flood watch will be issued, but that could change if the storm slows down. That's when the strongest winds will be felt, as winds may gust as high as 40 to 50 miles-per-hour during the day on Monday, especially in the higher elevations.

This cold front is bringing the coldest air mass of this season so far across much of the U.S. From the Great Lakes to Texas, freeze warnings are in effect.

Eighteen could bring 2 to 4 inches of rain to South Florida over the course of the weekend. This will steer the evolving tropical system northward across the northwestern Caribbean today and then over western Cuba tonight before emerge into the Florida Straits late tonight.


The storm is now about 380 miles southwest of Miami and moving northwest at 20 mph.

The storm was located about 20 miles southwest of Havana and about 120 miles south-southwest of Key West.
