Invest 94W is in a favorable environment for tropical development with robust westward and equatorward outflow aloft, low 5-10 knot wind shear, and warm sea surface temperatures.
Global models are in good agreement that invest 94W will steadily intensify as it tracks to the northwest over the next 24 hours.
