TRACKING THE TROPICS: Two areas continue to be monitored by the NHC.
Invest 94L southeast of Bermuda still has a high chance of developing into at least a subtropical depression in the next few days. Currently, the system is “poorly organized” however the environmental conditions remain conducive for development.
Today, the area in the southwestern Caribbean has a lower chance of developing, just 20% in the next five days. That’s down from 30% yesterday. Long-range forecast models, specially the GFS (the American model), is changing and does not develop a system like it has in previous days.
This is something that needs closely watched until all the forecast models come into agreement. Until then, confidence remains low on what will or will not develop in the Caribbean next week. At this time, nothing looks like a threat to the US.
