Still not a big deal, just a tropical depression. I don't know about the red "x" behind it though.

Yup the red X looks more concerning

Phil--certainly, as to Philippe. What's the thoughts about the one behind Philippe?

Check Mike's Weather site. For some reason NWS site does not show most recent posts.

91L riding behind TS Philippe (Soon to be named Rita) is going to interact with TS Philippe so it will not push 91L north but go more west. Not Good!

I am also not concerned much about the system behind Philippe.
It looks like upper level windshear & steering weather systems will diminish its strength. It will eventually turn north. But it looks like windshear will make certain it’s not strong. Again hopefully we get some much-needed rain but I’m not betting on that at this point.

Not sure how accurate the assessment is, but on Island 92 today they indicated that 91L will go also go north and not be a problem.

If one looks at the projected track for Philippe the next few days, it looks like a little lost boy!! Wandering around with nowhere to go.

Thankfully it looks like it will have completely run out of gas by the time it passes. As everyone says, we could use the rain. My dog disagrees, he doesn't care for the rain.

Possible Fujiwhara effect where two storms close to each other merge and become one… interesting!

Philippe continues to be a very weird storm. Expected to just meander around for the next several days, and then (hopefully) head straight north.

TS Philippe has moved more westerly overnight and will brush SXM on Monday.
Expect a good amount of rain with possible flash flooding and windy conditions.

Be careful out on the roads, people!! Tropical downpours can be very dangerous if you are out driving in them.

Be careful out there, people! Make plans to stay off the roads if there are downpours!

Right now, the Maho beach cam looks pretty good though.

Beautiful day at Sunset Beach Bar and the sand came back. The storm is worst on the southeast side of the circulation and not causing bad weather for now. So go enjoy the day but always keep an eye to the sky!

The island cam is showing some showers now, but nothing much on the other webcams. Presumably tomorrow will be the worst of what the island will get.

45 miles away from SXM so the storm will be at your door in a few hours. Guadeloupe recorded 12.4 inches of rain totals with dangerous flooding. Be safe!

According to Island 92, the storm is about 45 miles north of SXM. The sea is churned up but there does not seem to be much of a tidal surge on Simpson Bay Beach. All businesses are closed for the day and motorists are advised to stay off the roads.

Yes, hopefully people will stay off the roads. Very dangerous during these times.

Scott and Jim and Laraine--you should have a party there, since you're not going anywhere!

SXM Island cam looks very cloudy. Tropical storm WARNING issued for Anguilla. Weird, considering no watches even for SXM?
