Tracking the Tropics update for 7/16/17

Invest 95L

There will be a better chance of storms Monday afternoon due to the moisture associated with a tropical wave moving to our South.

It is beginning to look more organized, forecasters said, but lacks a defined center of circulation.

Forecasters says while conditions are not favourable for development before the system reaches the Lesser Antilles, it will bring pockets of moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorms and occasional gusty winds from tomorrow evening.

After that, less favourable upper-level winds are expected to hinder additional development.

The National Hurricane Center is tracking not one but two tropical waves far out in the Atlantic.

The Windward Islands mark the southeastern border of the Caribbean Sea.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts that Invest 95L has a 30% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone by Friday.

The other system is about 800 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.

There remains a 40 percent chance of development over the next five days.

The Met Office says the systems lacks a well-defined centre, but continues to show signs of organization as it moves west to west-northwest at about 15 miles per hour (24km/h).
