There is an area that is south andwest of Phillipe that might develop. What happened is Phillipe got absorbed and sheard apart of the east side of a
giant upper level low(ULL) and some of Phillipe's energy wrapped around in a counterclockwise motion around the upper level low where now on the west
side of that ULL another low level circulation has developed and has some potential to develop into yet another tropical system. The area around 26N
and 65W is that new low pressure center that needs to be watched.
That area is NOT Phillipe, for the remnants of Phillipe are located at 30.5N and 60.3W as of 5am AST.
last night on the 11 pm news they made reference to another storm building strength and forecasters were predicting another gulf storm. then they
went to commercial, then the weather and didn't mention it at all.
Here's the discussion concerning the system courtesy of NOAA
CENTRAL CARIBBEAN TROPICAL WAVE IS ALONG 75W/76W S OF CUBA WITH
A 1010 MB LOW ALONG THE WAVE NEAR 14N. OBSERVATIONS FROM BUOY
42058 SUGGEST THERE IS A WEAK LOW ASSOCIATED WITH THE WAVE WITH
WLY WINDS RECENTLY REPORTED...THOUGH THOSE WINDS ARE LIKELY
ENHANCED BY DOWNDRAFTS AND OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES. VISIBLE
SATELLITE PICTURES SHOW BANDING FEATURES DEVELOPING ON THE N
SIDE OF THE WAVE WITH SYMMETRIC OUTFLOW. THIS AREA HAS THE
POTENTIAL TO BECOME A TROPICAL CYCLONE WITHIN THE NEXT 36
HOURS. A SLOW MOVEMENT TO THE WNW IS LIKELY... PLACING THE
SYSTEM IN THE W CARIBBEAN LATE WED/EARLY THU. SCATTERED
MODERATE CONVECTION IS FROM 13.5N-17.5N BETWEEN 74W-78W. HEAVY
RAIN IS POSSIBLE FOR JAMAICA LATER TODAY AND OVERNIGHT.
