Tropical Daily Planner – Atlantic

Atmospheric conditions across much of the Atlantic basin are not supportive of organized tropical development. Despite ongoing convection east and northeast of the Antilles, upper level winds are far too strong for organization in this area.

One area that may be an exception to the rule over the next several days is the western Caribbean Sea. Invest 93L, a broad area of low pressure embedded within the monsoon trough, has a moderate chance of slow, limited development. Presently, 93L is showing no signs of strengthening at this time. Upper level winds are not conducive, but may become marginally favorable in a few days. Regardless of development, 93L is likely to eventually track to the northeast in the general direction of Cuba and the Bahamas between Saturday and Monday. Interests across Cuba, south Florida, and the Bahamas should continue to monitor 93L through the weekend. Early next week, 93L should become fully extratropical while merging with a frontal boundary near the Bahamas.
