BWS: Tropical Depression Is "Potential Threat"

When the system gains tropical storm strength it will be given the name Philippe and become the 16th named storm of the year.

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

Central Florida could receive some heavy amounts of rain, mainly courtesy of the tropical depression, but the main bulk of the heavier showers and storms will be focused south of Orange County.

The storm is forecast to have tropical storm strength, which means winds of 39-73 miles per hour, by the time it passes south of Florida, possibly hitting the Keys on its path to the Bahamas.

A tropical storm watch was issued for parts of South Florida and the Keys, from Craig Key to Golden Beach on the east coast.

"For that reason, a tropical storm watch has been issued for these areas".

It is expected to cross western and central Cuba on Saturday afternoon, and move through the northern Bahamas mid-to-late morning on Sunday.

The storm is expected to continue to move northeast and pass well off the North Carolina coast.

For southwest Florida, the worst of the rain associated from Philippe has already fallen.

South Florida, including the Florida Keys, is slated to get two to four inches of rainfall with a maximum total of six inches into Sunday.

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.
