DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Philippe was
located near latitude 16.2 North, longitude 58.8 West. Philippe is
moving toward the west-northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h). A 
west-northwestward to northwestward motion is expected through 
tonight.  A track toward the northwest with an increase in forward
speed is expected on Monday, followed by a northward motion on
Tuesday.  On the forecast track, the center of Philippe is forecast
to pass near or just northeast of the northern Leeward Islands on
Monday and Monday night.

Satellite wind data indicate that the maximum sustained winds 
remain near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in 
strength is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Philippe could 
begin to intensify more significantly around the middle of the week.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 170 miles (275 km),
primarily east of the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).

RAINFALL:  Philippe is forecast to produce the following rainfall
amounts through Tuesday:

Barbuda and Antigua: 4 to 6 inches
Rest of the Leeward Islands: 2 to 4 inches

This rainfall may result in isolated to scattered flash flooding.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch areas by
Monday morning.

SURF:  Swells generated by Philippe will affect portions of the
Atlantic coasts of the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin
