A tropical low pressure system located several hundred miles east of Miami, Florida is being tracked as Invest 97L. This system has become better organized today, and a tropical cyclone may be forming despite low probability odds per NHC.

While 97L is expected to merge with a front later this week and move off to the east or northeast, there is a window of opportunity for the incipient cyclone to head more southerly instead, and impact the Bahamas, Cuba, and locations in that general area.

This is where to put your mid to long range best guesses on potential for further development, intensity, and forecast track. Longer range model output discussions are also appropriate here.
