MIAMI (WFLA) – Tropical Storm Philippe has weakened over the western Atlantic.

The Tropical Storm Warnings for Cuba and the northwestern Bahamas have discontinued.

Remnants of Philippe are about 290 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Philippe’s winds are blowing at 60 mph and the storm is moving north-northeast at 46 mph.
