I also still see the remnant LLC scraping Cuba this afternoon, with the remainder of what was Chris having taken the form of a classic 'Inverted V' wave. Here's my honest opinion of this feature: We need to be watching this as if it were an Invest. Interaction with land (Cuba and Florida) is helping to enhance convection, and of course, convection leads to more favorable conditions for development. I'm not writing off x-Chris. If we see a continuation of all of this convection of the Inverted V wave (with an attendant LLC of x-Chris still present on it's southern flank) once it is in the Gulf, we should really start watching it again.
Feature coming off Louisiana: This MCS (Mesoscale Convective System, or an organized system of thunderstorms - a large organized complex, if you will) does have a subtle mid-level circ. These features can, and do, occasionally work to the surface and become Tropical Cyclones.
IMHO - both of these should be watched closely, especially so because they are very close to land.
Models keep wanting to develop that wave off of Africa into a TC. I'm keeping an eye on it, too.
