A long-advertised trof of low pressure we have been watching in the Caribbean has developed a well-defined center of circulation today, and as showers and a few thunderstorms are starting to organize in association with it, we are starting a Forecast Lounge on this disturbance, which is not yet Invest tagged.

NHC has held development odds within five days generally in the 20% to 30% range, and that is almost surely going to go up by morning. While early model runs have suggested that Invest TBD heads out to sea, it has some land mass interaction ahead regardless of development, and interests in and around Cuba, Florida, the Bahamas or possibly even northwest into the Gulf of Mexico - should a few more recent runs turn out to be correct, may want to pay closer attention as a Tropical Cyclone could be forming Friday or over the weekend, and traversing one or more locations in these areas.

As of 10/23 2AM CDT this disturbance has been Invest tagged, 95L, and the title has been updated accordingly. 95L has become the twenty-eighth Tropical Cyclone of the 2005 Atlantic Hurricane Season as of 10/24 and the title has been updated accordingly.

Fully vaccinated as of May 2021
(Moderna x2)
