At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Philippe was

moving toward the southwest near 5 mph (7 km/h). A slow turn toward 
the west-southwest and west is expected through early Sunday,

night through Tuesday. 

Maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph (85 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and
Philippe could become a hurricane early next week.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km)

HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF:  Swells generated by Philippe will affect portions of the
Atlantic coasts of the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin
Islands, and Puerto Rico through early next week. These swells are
likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Please consult products from your local weather office.
