MIAMI - The Atlantic's latest tropical storm is likely to strengthen soon into a short-lived hurricane while staying far from land, US hurricane foresters said on Sunday.

Tropical Storm Philippe, the 16th named storm of the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season, came to life on Saturday as forecasters tracked another tropical storm, Ophelia, which was approaching the Caribbean.

Forecasters at the US National Hurricane Center predicted Ophelia will skirt the Caribbean's island chains and neither storm will constitute a threat to the densely populated US coast or energy interests in the Gulf of Mexico.
