Odds for Formation in Five Days Now Up to 60 Percent

As Hermine begins to wind down, and Invest 92L shows no signs of development for the rest of this week, focus turns to our tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic. Invest 93L, or a tropical wave located near the West Coast of Africa presently has an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms.

However, according to the latest Tropical Weather Outlook from the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida, low pressure is expected to form in association with this wave over the next 48 hours as it moves to the West-Northwest some several hundred miles to the West-Southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

Currently, sea surface temperatures and upper level winds appear favorable for development in the area of Invest 93L. Although the NHC is giving only 10 percent odds for tropical development with this disturbance over the next 48 hours, the chances for formation get better over the next five days. Odds for development are up to 60 percent by five days.
