Tropical Depression 18 Becomes Tropical Storm Philippe

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

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 storm was moving north at 29 miles per hour.

- Tropical Storm Philippe formed over Cuba on Saturday as it continues to move northward toward south Florida. Regardless of strength, Philippe will produce flash flooding in South Florida.

"In areas from Central America to Cuba, heavy rain will be the main issue and not so much the wind".

Conditions are conducive for additional development, and chances are now high that a tropical depression or storm will form this weekend.

Habana, Matanzas, Cienfuegos and Villa Clara as well as the northwestern Bahamas, the center said. Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for the Bahamas, however, as the strong winds and heavy rain are on the eastern side of the storm. The disturbance is showing winds of 35 miles per hour. It said the rainfall is spreading north across the Florida Keys and South Florida.

Forecasters are studying the development of a potential tropical storm in the western Caribbean in case it is picked up by the jet stream and carried across the Atlantic towards Britain. There is a chance that these watches are extended farther south later today if the heavier rain totals are forecast to be more widespread.

The center of Tropical Depression Eighteen was located by reconnaissance aircraft and radars from Cuba and Grand Cayman near latitude 20.8 North, longitude 82.9 West.
