Tropical Update

Taking a look at the tropics, all eyes continue to monitor the weak disturbance in the Atlantic. This area of low pressure, otherwise known as Invest 93L has been on the verge of becoming a tropical depression over the past 24 hours but has struggled to do so. The center of the low is currently located 1000 miles east of the southern Windward Islands.

Invest 93L has been weakening today, but in the afternoon update of their tropical outlook the NHC has given the disturbance a 50% chance of developing into at least a tropical depression over the next 48 hours, and a 50% chance of further development over the next five days.

We will continue to monitor the area of low pressure as it continues to move westward. If this disturbance survives, models are in pretty good agreement  in the track of this area of low pressure. Note: the following graphic does not portray the intensity of the surface low, just the track.
