LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE 27.8 NORTH, LONGITUDE 77.5 WEST. PHILIPPE IS  
MOVING TOWARD THE EAST-NORTHEAST NEAR 31 MPH (50 KM/H). A MOTION  
TOWARD THE NORTHEAST AT A FASTER FORWARD SPEED IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN  
LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY. ON THE FORECAST  
TRACK, THE CENTER OF PHILIPPE WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE QUICKLY AWAY  
FROM THE FLORIDA EAST COAST AND THE NORTHWESTERN BAHAMAS AND EMERGE  
OVER THE OPEN WESTERN ATLANTIC LATER THIS AFTERNOON, REMAINING WELL  
AWAY FROM THE UNITED STATES AND BERMUDA.  
 
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 50 MPH (85 KM/H) WITH HIGHER GUSTS.  
SOME SLIGHT STRENGTHENING IS POSSIBLE DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO.  
HOWEVER, PHILIPPE IS EXPECTED TO BECOME A POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE BY  
TONIGHT, AND BE ABSORBED BY A LARGE EXTRATROPICAL LOW ON MONDAY.  
 
TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 195 MILES (315 KM)  
FROM THE CENTER. RECENT SHIP OBSERVATIONS CONTINUE TO INDICATE THAT  
TROPICAL-STORM-FORCE WINDS OF 40 TO 50 MPH (65 TO 83 KM/H) ARE  
OCCURRING ACROSS THE WATERS IN AND NEAR THE NORTHWESTERN BAHAMAS.  
IN ADDITION, SUSTAINED WINDS OF 35 MPH (56 KM/H) AND GUSTS TO 51 MPH  
(81 KM/H) HAVE BEEN OCCURRING AT SETTLEMENT POINT ON THE WESTERN END
