    Invests in the gulf and caribbean : probable tropical development

    Heads up!


    "There are now two "invests" or areas of investigation in the tropics.

    Invest 93 is a broad low pressure area in the extreme western Caribbean Sea near Honduras. This low pressure is forecast to move over Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and enter the southern Gulf of Mexico early next week. It has a high chance of developing into a tropical depression or perhaps a tropical storm in the next five days. Right now models are not strengthening it too much, and they keep it away from Louisiana, but we will be watching it closely since there is a lot of uncertainty. We will continue to track it and will keep you updated.

    A second area to watch, Invest 92, is a tropical wave way out in the Atlantic Ocean. Right now it has a medium chance of development as it moves west toward northern South America next week.

    The outlook for the 2017 season is expected to be an above average season. The lack of a developing El Nino is now expected to increase activity."
