TD 17 has recently been upgraded to Tropical Storm Philippe and continues to strengthen. The models are coming into a much better agreement on the track of the storm. Right now Philippe does not look like he will be an immediate threat to land as he will be moving off to the north in the short term.
Already her sustained winds are up to 50 mph . Healthy outflow to the south and east combined with very low shear and warm sea surface temperatures should allow Philippe to quickly become a hurricane.
