All eyes are now east of the Caribbean with another Invest, 94L, with a HIGH chance of becoming a Tropical Cyclone within the next 5 days. Models are especially bullish on this intense tropical wave, and there is nothing obvious ahead to discount such aggressive forecasts. Interests in the Eastern Caribbean may want to begin paying closer attention.

Behind 94L there is another wave that appears to have some potential to start coming together in as little as the next couple of days. The tropical wave train this past week has looked a lot more like what we expect later in the season.
Much closer, a few models want to spin up a portion of the front that is now entering the northern Gulf into a low pressure center, perhaps TD or weak TS, in the coming week and send it west. Could call it a Texas "threat," but if all it becomes is a weak named storm at most, lots of Texans might think it more of a treat given the ongoing drought.
The second half of June begins with yet another new Invest (93L). This continues a trend of an unusually perky first month of the Atlantic Hurricane Season, and as climatology favors systems that form in the western Atlantic during any month of June, named systems are more likely than not to occur close to land at this time of year.
Invest 93L is presently located in the extreme southwestern Caribbean. NHC gives this Tropical Low a 40% chance of becoming a T.D. or T.S. within about 48-96 hours (and it is already nearly there). The system is expected to track north-northwest to northwest over the coming days, and heavy precipitation with the potential for flooding is likely over eastern Nicaragua and eastern Honduras this week, regardless of development.
Recon is tentatively scheduled to fly 93L tomorrow (Wednesday).
