Invest 97L – A disorganized system

Invest 97L which is now near the Leeward Islands is still a very disorganized system and has still been a elongated east -west low pressure system but it has maintained it’s identity. Upper level winds will be decreasing and there is a possibility that 97L might become a depression in 48 hours or so. A few models are forecasting that 97L will become at least a depression and at least one model has it as at least a tropical storm. Due to a vigorous trough off the US East coast, 97L is forecast to back a sharp turn NE and away from the US coast. Regardless of any development, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola will be having heavy rains.

The GFS Model is forecasting that a new system will be developing in the Western Caribbean. We will have to see in a few days if the other models start see this system.
