A tropical wave that has rolled off western Africa and is now located several hundred miles southeast of the Cabo Verde Islands in the far eastern Atlantic is being monitored for development.

This disturbance has a setup favorable for long-track and high-ACE. If indeed 98L does develop, it could threaten land closer to the US based on long range modelling. As such, we are now opening up a Lounge.

Long range forecasts for systems this far out in the Atlantic are often deviled by a dearth of data and aren't the most reliable, but we could have a lot of time to watch this one, and should it come close enough, recon would go in.

NHC development odds at the time of this post of 10%/60% at 2D/5D, respectively.

98L became EIGHTEEN on Sep 22 and the title has been updated
