Disturbance 1. Tropical Storm Philippe is no threat to our area at this time and is expected to drift for the next few days. Interests in the Northern Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico should monitor its progress. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
Disturbance 2. Central Tropical Atlantic (AL91): An area of low pressure is located roughly halfway between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for development, as long as this system remains far enough removed from Tropical Storm Philippe to its west. A tropical depression or storm is expected to form later today or on Friday while the system moves northwestward across the central tropical Atlantic. Formation chance through 48 hours...high...90 percent and formation chance through 7 days...high...90 percent.
