|(Tropical Depression Ophelia)|
As of tonight, Ophelia is bringing some stormy conditions to the Antilles Islands. You can see her building some thunderstorms right over some of the islands. Recon data was showing the stronger winds and rain well to the northeast of the islands however, and the NHC has not issued any watches or warnings as of 10pm eastern. Probably just light rain and gusty conditions there for right now.
Tropical Storm Philippe ran into quite a bit more dry air than was expected. That fact, coupled with some moderate westerly wind shear, has left Philippe with a structure that we have seen many times this season. A fairly empty swirl, void of convection. But he is still way out in the east Atlantic, so he's got plenty of time to come and go.
