Slow Development Possible In Central Atlantic Over The Next Few Days

In general, activity in the Atlantic basin remains low as we get ready wrap up the month of July. However, a weak wave (Invest 97L) in the central Atlantic may see slow development in the coming days thanks to a semi-favorable environment.


Wind shear is minimal in the vicinity of this wave, but it is dealing with only marginally warm sea-surface temperatures around 80°, as well as a substantial pocket of dry air just to it’s north (Image below courtesy of NOAA/University of Wisconsin). While the formation of a tropical depression is possible as this wave moves west-northwest , this shouldn’t pose much of a threat to the Caribbean.
