Area of Interest - Invest 91L Off West African Coast

At 08/00Z, Invest 91L was located just off the central West African coast at 13.5N 17.6W or well to the east southeast of the Cape Verde Islands. Winds are at 25kts and pressure is 1007MB with movement to the west at 9 knots. SSTs in the area are 28C and the system has emerged into a light but narrow shear-free zone. As noted, NHC has taken a rather aggressive stance on the likelyhood of additional development. Some of the early model outputs rapidly intensify the system, however, it is also worth noting that a zone of westerly shear exists just to the north of the developing Invest area which could eventually temper the rate of development..
