In the tropics, the only named system right now is Tropical Storm Philippe in the central Atlantic. It’s forecast to face significant wind shear for the next few days as it turns northwestward and then more to the north, keeping it well east of the Lesser Antilles.
What was Ophelia is now a remnant low, but it continues to drop heavy rain on New York state and portions of New England. Elsewhere, the wave in the eastern Atlantic has a medium chance of becoming a depression this week. Computer models indicate it will generally follow in Philippe’s wake.
