Re: Strong W Africa Wave

The vigorous tropical wave and associated broad area of low pressure has entered the far eastern Atlantic and is now being tracked as an Invest, 90L, and the title has been updated accordingly.

Invest 90L is very likely to become a tropical cyclone prior to passing west of the Cabo Verde islands, and Tropical Storm conditions are possible. Watches and Warnings may soon be issued even if a TD has not yet formed, given the close proximity to land as a Potential Tropical Cyclone. PTC explained well on Weather.com: What is a Potential Tropical Cyclone?

Interests in the Cabo Verde Islands may want to begin taking weather ready precautions for a blustery and very wet storm, regardless of classification or not.
