A robust, convectively active African Easterly Wave rolling off that continent and into the far eastern Atlantic is already showing some potential. This wave has just been Invest tagged, 99L.

At 9/21/0z the center of 99L was estimated to be near 9.2N 13.3W, with winds of about 25 KTS and minimum pressure of 1007 MB. Waters in the far eastern Atlantic are not very warm, but NHC does place a 40% opening bid for development within 5 days on this wave, and is often the case, an initially weaker/delayed development scenario could have 99L tracking further west with time.

99L has become Tropical Storm Kirk on 9/22/18 and the title has been updated. - Ciel
