South of 93L

What about the two areas south of 93L? The southern most disturbance around 8N 47W I assume is still attached to the ITCZ but the one just west of the Cape Verdes almost appears to my untrained eye to have some cyclonic turning. Am I seeing things or do either of these need to be watched?

Re: South of 93L

The tropical convection well to the south of 93L is indeed embedded in the ITCZ - and under some rather hefty southeasterly shear. I can't find any feature of consequence west of the Cape Verde's.

Invest 93L itself has fairly good structure but all convection is still located to the north and east. The weak circulation was located at 11.9N 45.9W at 08/13Z and the system has been moving to the northwest at a fairly brisk pace for the past 48 hours.

Re: South of 93L

My apologies for posting this on the main page, way off topic I know. And I need to learn to look at things a little longer, my observations were based on short term satellite loops and at that time there was a nice "blob" of convection west of Cape Verde that is completely diminished now and that area along the ITCZ has been torn to's why I read most of the time and comment very little. Thanks for the response!
