Tropical Storm Franklin continues to intensify in the western Caribbean Sea as the system tracks to the west-northwest towards the Yucatan Peninsula. Franklin is expected to make landfall over the Yucatan within 24 hours as a tropical storm. In the next 48 hours, Franklin is then forecast to move back over water in the Bay of Campeche where further strengthening is forecast. Final landfall is expected along the east coast of Mexico due to a strong ridge over the Gulf of Mexico.
Invest 99L is becoming increasingly elongated as the system moves into a region marked by high amounts of vertical wind shear. Invest 99L now has a low chance of tropical development, most likely on day 5 as the wind shear is expected to begin to decrease slightly and potentially allow for some organization.

Invest 99L – Advisory #14

Invest 99L will move into unfavorable conditions, which will act to greatly reduce the developmental potential for the next 5 days. However, there is a possibility for development after that 5-day period as conditions become more favorable and the system gains latitude.
