Tropical Depression 3 Dissipates in late July

Posted: 09:30 AM 21 July 2019 | 3 Comments | Add Comment | Newest: 03:02 PM 22-Jul EDT

11 AM EDT 23 July 2019 Update
TD#3 has dissipated after recon found it falling apart.

There is an area in the Gulf with a 20% chance for development later in the week.

9:30 PM EDT 22 July 2019 Update
Tropical Depression 3 formed, and quickly lost convection after being upgraded. Although overnight it may regain some.

This is expected to remain offshore of Florida, and outside of right along the beach, should not be really noticeable to Florida.

Original Update
The National Hurricane Center is mentioning a new area east of the Bahamas in the Outlook, with a 20% chance of development. This area, being designated Invest 94L, has no model support yet, but there is enough vorticity to make it worth watching.

If this were late August or September it probably be much more concerning. It's been mostly surrounded by dry air, but is gaining some moisture, but will likely remain squelched by dry air for the next few days. It's fighting a front coming up as well, so the chances for anything happening are quite low. But because of the location it's now designated 94L.

No real model support, but the chance for a small system ramping up is still there. Since it's near Bahamas and Florida it has our attention.

See The forecast lounge. for more speculation.

July 22nd 5PM EDT update - The NHC decided to classify the system in the Bahamas as Tropical Depression 3. Not much is expected from the system as it moves north for the next couple of days until it's likely absorbed by a frontal boundary.

However, interests along the Florida, Georgia, and Carolina coast should keep an eye on the system.

Beyond Tropical Depression Three, there is an area in the gulf with a 20% chance for Development over the next 5 days. Likely just a weak rainmaker, but the Northern/NE Gulf coasts will want to watch it.

Barry is doing a run on strengthening today, but it still a fairly sloppy system, although the primary center is not expected to make landfall until tomorrow morning, a strong are of convection currently on south side of the center likely will rotate around and up over the Louisiana coastline and near New Orleans, likely late afternoon or evening. This will bring heavy rain and surge into the areas. Lake Pontchartrain is now under a storm Surge Warning.
