The disturbance in the central Atlantic east of Tropical Storm Philippe is now Tropical Storm Rina.
Tropical Storm Rina is dealing with wind shear, which will help limit its strengthening. It’s also quite close to Tropical Storm Philippe, and the two are having some interaction that complicates what will happen.
For now, it appears that the storm will stay at sea, passing north of the Leeward Islands. However, this could change depending on how it interacts with Philippe over the next few days.
