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.

Tropical Storm Philippe is located about 20 miles southwest of Havana, Cuba Saturday and is tracking north at 29 mph. Regardless of strength, Philippe will produce flash flooding in South Florida.

The National Hurricane Center said Tropical Depression 18 could become Tropical Storm Philippe by tonight and brush the southern part of Florida on its way to the Bahamas.

A tropical storm watch has been issued for the upper Florida Keys and southeast Florida, including coastal Miami-Dade. There is also a tropical storm watch for southern Florida.

This morning forecasters do not think a flood watch will be issued, but that could change if the storm slows down. This storm should become better organized and will likely strengthen into Tropical Storm Philippe later today. It will also bring heavy rain and potential isolated tornaodes to south Florida. Wind gusts will be between 15-35 miles per hour inland and 35-50 miles per hour along the coast and Outer Banks Sunday into Monday morning. On the forecast track, the center of Philippe is predicted to move off of the northern coast of Cuba and into the Florida Straits this evening.

The NHC forecasted rainfall for the Cayman Islands, western and central Cuba and Northwestern Bahamas (4-8 inches with maximum 10 inches possible); and South Florida and Florida Keys (2-4 inches with maximum 6 inches possible).
