Tropical Storm Philippe to Make Landfall in Florida

This has been an incredibly active tropical season, and Philippe is here to prove that season is not over yet.  The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center shows the cone of uncertainty moving over south Florida, which has prompted Tropical Storm Watches to be issued in the Keys.

Philippe is still a Tropical Storm based on its current strength.  The storm is moving generally north near 30 mph, but has sustained wind speeds of 40 mph with gusts at 50 mph.  Philippe is forecast to strengthen in the next two days.

The forecast track does take this storm through the Florida Keys and into south Florida.  Miami, in particular, looks to be in the path of this storm.

Heavy rain leading to some localized flash flooding and strong wind gusts are expected with this storm.  Three tornadoes were reported near Miami earlier this afternoon, and the threat for isolated tornadoes in south Florida exists tonight, too.
