CHANGES WITH THIS ADVISORY:

The Government of the Bahamas has discontinued the Tropical

SUMMARY OF WATCHES AND WARNINGS IN EFFECT:

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect.


DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Philippe was
located near latitude 28.7 North, longitude 75.4 West. Philippe is
moving toward the east-northeast near 36 mph (74 km/h). A motion
toward the northeast is expected to begin later this afternoon and
tonight and continue through Monday. On the forecast track, the
center of Philippe will move farther away from the United States
east coast and the northwestern Bahamas, and emerge over the open
western Atlantic this afternoon and tonight, remaining well away
from the United States and Bermuda.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 km/h) with
higher gusts. Little change in strengthen is expected today, and
Philippe is forecast to merge with a cold front and become a
post-tropical cyclone by tonight, and be absorbed by a large
extratropical low on Monday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles (315 km)
from the center. Recent ship observations continue to indicate that
tropical-storm-force winds of 40 to 50 mph (65 to 83 km/h) are
occurring to the east of northwestern Bahamas.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 997 mb (29.44 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Philippe is expected to produce additional rain
accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over eastern Cuba. This rainfall
could cause flash flooding, especially in urban areas and in the
mountainous terrain of Cuba.


NEXT ADVISORY

Next complete advisory at 500 PM EDT.
