Tracking The Tropics: More development possible in the Atlantic

Posted: Updated:

Early this morning Kirk came back from an open tropical wave and is now back to being a tropical storm, but there are two other areas of interest in the Atlantic this morning that could develop.

Let's start with the system closest to the United States: Invest 98 L. This wave has weakened this morning and stronger wind shear is taking a toll, which is why 98 L is now down to a 30% chance for tropical development.

 

 

Regardless of that tropical development though, 98 L is going to move very close to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, bringing periods of rain showers. Once it moves away though, it should move out to sea.

 

Taking a shift now to the east, what was Subtropical Storm Leslie was also downgraded yesterday, and it doesn't look impressive at all on the satellite. Over the next few days, it won't do much, but by the end of the week will likely become a Subtropical Storm once again.

Current model projections, however, are a huge mess. Leslie is still expected to meander in the middle of the North Atlantic and not impact landmasses.
