At the 11 a.m. advisory, sustained winds remain at 35 miles per hour, 5 MPH under Tropical Storm status and getting the name Philippe.

Moisture from this potential storm will first get drawn north and then northeastward by a southward dip in the jet stream that will sweep through the central and eastern states late this week into the weekend.

The storm is now located about 170 miles south-southwest of Havana, Cuba, and is already bringing heavy rains to the island and as far north as Florida Keys.

The storm was forecast to dump heavy rains over El Salvador, southern Guatemala and southern Honduras, threatening flash floods.

Tropical Storm Watches are in effect, as the brunt of the storm will stay off shore.

Tropical Storm Philippe has formed near Cuba.

President Donald Trump's latest Twitter foe is a Democratic U.S. congresswoman from Florida who wears a glittering cowboy hat. Their standoff started Tuesday, when Wilson claimed in an interview with CNN that she was in a vehicle with the wife of U.S.

Most of the storm's winds will be on the east side of the center, but they will come close enough that forecasters decided watches are necessary. Philippe will move across Cuba and into the Florida Straits on Saturday Night.

The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which has tapered off since this summer, looks to be readying another named storm, the National Hurricane Center reports.

The NHC said: "A couple of brief tornadoes are possible across far South Florida and the Florida Keys from midday through this evening".

The Sun Sentinel reports that heavy rains have already hit South Florida.

The center of Tropical Depression Eighteen was located by reconnaissance aircraft and radars from Cuba and Grand Cayman near latitude 20.8 North, longitude 82.9 West.
