Update - Sunday 5PM Invest 90L in the central Atlantic has increased in intensity and structure and is now classified as Tropical Depression #6 located near 14.5N 40W. Slow intensification is forecast (eventually to hurricane strength) as the system initially moves to the northwest and then more westward in a couple of days as a mid-Atlantic trough is replaced by a building ridge to the north of the Depression. The caveat on intensification is an area of significant wind shear located to the north and northwest of the system. ED
Original Post It's nearing the peak of hurricane season, and things can change fast, and this year is no exception, a wave in the eastern Caribbean (99L) has formed and may form into a Depression over the next few days. It is expected to cross into the Caribbean, so we again will have to watch a system in the Caribbean over the next few days.
Chance for wave in the eastern Caribbean (99L) to develop in the next 24-48 hours Code:
Elsewhere another wave in the east central Atlantic (90L) has formed, and we'll be watching that over the next few days, this is very likely to form sooner rather than later too. The other wave (98L) is looking to be dying out, so just the two at the moment, again things can change rapidly this time of the season.
