Subtropical Development in February Possible
      #92445 - Sun Feb 05 2012 02:02 PM

An area near the Yucatan channel has been designated invest 90L, in February on Super Bowl Sunday.

Although shear is a bit too high to allow for pure tropical development, there exists a possibility for sub-tropical development, which is unusual, but has occurred in the past, in early February of 1952 there was an unusually warm winter in Florida, and during this a storm See track made landfall Feb 2, groundhog's day in southwest Florida. This system formed near where the invest currently is now.

This will be monitored for potential development, right now probably about a 10-20% shot. Those in Southwest Florida may expect a rough Tuesday or Wednesday if this materializes, but it will be more a rainmaker and oddity than any real threat.
