Happy Friday !!
I was asked the other day what is an “Invest”. It is the name given to a tropical wave that deserves to be investigated for possible development. Now that we got that out the way here is what is happening in the tropics as we speak.
A tropical wave has been labeled invest 91L. It is currently about 950-1,000 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving west to west-northwest. The National Hurricane Center gives this tropical wave a 30% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone within the next 48 hours. This wave might need to be watched as it approaches the Leeward and Windward Islands since we are entering the part of the hurricane season where tropical waves come off Africa and traverse the Atlantic.
I just wanted to put the word out there and more information will be gathered for my Monday post. If anything new changes throughout the weekend, I will post it.
Have a great weekend !!
