Re: Trop Wave in SE Bahamas

It already looks like we have Tropical Storm Jose in the BOC and it appears to be gaining strength fairly quickly. It looks a lot better than Gert ever did.

The Bahamas system looks interesting, with a southwesterly surface wind being pulled off the eastern section of Cuba. The upper low to its north should keep any development in check for the next day or two, but the upper air conditions should improve thereafter. This could be an interesting system if the planets align just right.

97 Invest is a HUGE circulation, but it is already pretty far to the north so it would have to stay pretty weak to make it across the Atlantic without turning north ahead of the trough off the US east coast.
