Tropical Cyclone Activity Report – Atlantic Ocean / Caribbean Sea / Gulf of Mexico

There are no active tropical cyclones at the time of this writing

However, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) reports that showers and thunderstorms associated with a low pressure system located about 500 miles south-southwest of the Azores, have changed little in organization today.

Gradual development of this system is still possible, and it could become a subtropical cyclone during the next couple of days before upper level winds become unfavorable.

Regardless of development, this low is expected to produce winds to near gale force during the next couple of days while it moves slowly northeastward.

This tropical disturbance is being referred to as Invest 96L, and here’s what the computer models are showing

This area of disturbed weather poses no threat to land.

* Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent
* Formation chance through 5 days…medium…50 percent
