Twin Tropical Storms over the North Atlantic

NOAA Satellite Image

Twin tropical storms are over the central North Atlantic and they are close enough to each other to interact.






Tropical Storm Philippe

Tropical Storm Philippe is a disorganized storm and the center position and motion is uncertain due to the proximity of developing Tropical Storm Rina to the west. In the short term, a slow southwest motion is expected then a turn towards the north.

Currently max winds are estimated at 45 kts and the environmental conditions near Philippe are no longer unfavorable so the intensity likely will remain about the same, however, intensification is not out of the question.
