Tropical Storm Philippe has winds of 45 m.p.h and is moving west at 9 m.p.h.

It will continue to move west over the next couple of days, then it will encounter a weakness in the Bermuda high and curve north by mid-week.

Long range computer models are in good agreement with keeping this storm out to sea and away from the United States.

A tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic has a medium chance of formation over the next seven days.

A tropical depression could form mid-week as the system moves west-northwest into the Central Atlantic.
