A surface trough in the central Atlantic about 1000 miles east of the northern Lesser Antilles looks poised to become our next classifiable system. It is getting heavily sheared now but should drift north into more favorable conditions over the next couple days. It does not have an invest tag but probably will soon. NHC chances of development are at 40% and climbing and most of the globals do develop it to varying degrees. It will most likely be a fish spinner getting picked up and swept out to the NE by a digging trough off the east coast in about a week, although Bermuda may want to keep an eye on it.

Edit: This area is now been dubbed Invest 95L with chances of development at 70%.

Re: Invest 95L

An Invest (95L) we have been tracking roughly 900 miles east of the Lesser Antilles has become Oscar, the 15th named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. As of 0z 10/27, Oscar was centered near 26.4N 45.3 with maximum sustained winds of roughly 45 MPH. While expected to be a classic fish spinner, we will keep tabs on it just in case.
