Tropical Storms Ophelia and Philippe Gather Strength

Both weak tropical storms, Ophelia and Philippe pose no imminent threat to the U.S. mainland. Ophelia, having regained some strength, is expected to turn northward over the next day, possibly achieving Category 1 status in the next 36-48 hours. Philippe is not expected to strengthen much and should continue moving along a west or west-northwest path. Both storms are captured in this GOES-13 western hemisphere image acquired on September 28, 2011 at 1745z.
