Tropical Depression Eighteen has formed in the Caribbean and is forecast to become a tropical storm later Saturday or into Sunday.

A tropical storm watch has been issued for the upper Florida Keys and southeast Florida, including coastal Miami-Dade. Rainfall amounts could reach above 5 inches across parts of South Florida and around 1.5 in the southern tier of Central Florida. "Families in South Florida should pay attention to local weather updates and be alert for potentially heavy rain and flooding throughout the weekend".

At 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, the storm was about 55 miles east of Youth and 170 miles south of Havana, Cuba. An inbound cold front from the northwest will help to push this storm away from the peninsula rapidly, and then ushering in cooler, windier and drier conditions by late Sunday and Monday.

The storm is forecast to have tropical storm strength, which means winds of 39-73 miles per hour, by the time it passes south of Florida, possibly hitting the Keys on its path to the Bahamas. On the forecast track, the center of Philippe is predicted to move off of the northern coast of Cuba and into the Florida Straits this evening.

A tropical system over the Atlantic has strengthened into a tropical depression and is threatening to evolve into Storm Philippe over the next two days.

Tropical Storm Philippe does not pose a threat to our stretch of the Gulf Coast.
