Environmental analysis shows invest 90B is in a marginal environment for development, with westward outflow aloft, warm sea surface temperatures, offset by moderate 15-20 knot wind shear.
Global models are in general agreement that invest 90B will not significantly intensify and remain below tropical storm strength while tracking north-northeastward.
Maximum sustained surface winds are estimated at 10-15 knots.
The potential for the development of a significant tropical cyclone within the next 24 hours remains low.
