Ophelia appears to have begun making her turn to the North which will keep her at sea. As of right now, only one model has her continuing to the West
into the Bahamas (GFS model), but I believe that model will be updated shortly showing a Northern Turn.
The storm system I posted on early this morning has not formed into Tropical Storm Phillipe. I will say again, much like this morning, this is one to
keep an eye on in my opinion. This thing has formed up very quickly and is expected to be a Cat 1 storm by Monday afternoon. Current winds are 40 mph
which makes it a weak Tropical Storm. All the early models show a very early and sharp turn to the North which will keep it at sea, but as most know I
do not put a ton of stock into early models.
There has also been a low pressure system that has been ahead of Ophelia. I have noticed it all week. It will begin to form, but very quickly break
apart. Then a few days later, it will begin to organize again, then fall back apart. Normally I would not even mention it, however this low has begun
to show signs of organization, and this low now sits right off the coast of South Florida. It currently has a 40% chance to develop over the next 48
hours. It is moving North at around 15 mph.
