Invest 92L Spins Up in Eastern Atlantic
      #92499 - Sat May 12 2012 09:22 PM

Invest 92L is the non-tropical surface reflection of a developing upper level low and at 12/23Z the low was located near 33.5N 30.5W in the far eastern Atlantic about 400 miles southwest of the southern Azores. The gale center has winds of 45kts and a central pressure of 1009mb and the system is moving north - in a cyclonic loop for most of Saturday. A frontal system near 55W is approaching from the west and should nudge the low off to the northeast in a day or so.

NHC gives the system a modest (40%) chance for subtropical development which seems a bit high given the chilly SSTs of 21C. With just three weeks before the start of the season, this system serves as a reminder that the 2012 hurricane season is fast approaching.

ADDED 5/13: Chances diminishing for any additional development of this system.
