A Tale of Two Invests

Good morning, everybody, Dr. Rob Carver filling in for Jeff on Independence Day.

Currently, NHC is monitoring two different areas for possible tropical cyclone development. Invest 95L is about 125 miles west-southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi and it doesn't have much thunderstorm activity associated with it. Dry air from the north and strong wind shear have weakened it considerably from yesterday, and NHC believes it has a 10% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone before the feature makes landfall.

Invest 96L is in the western Caribbean sea and bears watching closely. Earlier in the morning, the convection was all on the east side of the circulation center, but thunderstorms have developed on the southwest side. According to the CIMMS wind shear analysis, 96L is on the outskirts of a low wind shear region just east of the Yucatan peninsula. It's also over warm SST's (>29 deg C), so it could intensify. NHC gives it a 20% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours. Computer models have 96L going through the Yucatan Channel then turning left and making landfall somewhere near the Rio Grande.

Next Update
My next post will be sometime Monday afternoon/evening. If the situation changes significantly before then, I'll make a new post. In any event, enjoy the holidays...

Quoting MiamiHurricanes09:
The circulation is decoupled to the south and north, plus the showers and thunderstorms are disorganized. Unless 96L can fix all these things in the next 6 hours it will either likely stay at 30% or be decreased further to 20%.


Yeah, I understand that, but at 8AM I thought it would recover a little bit faster than it is now.. XD I still think it can pull itself together enough so that it won't go down to yellow.

95L is looking really good for a storm with 0% chance .LLC is trying to get under the convection with 29 mph + sustained winds. It could have easily been upgraded yesterday to a an std .

Quoting MississippiWx:


Not really. In 72 hours, the NHC has it off the coast of Texas and Louisiana. It doesn't even have convection around it right now.
3 days is plenty of time for organization as it will be under favorable conditions in the western GOM.

A little while earlier after the 8AM I thought that it would continue to go down to 30% at 2PM, but would go back up to 40% at 8PM.. I'm right about the first half so far.

Even if 96L does become a TD it looks like mainly a rainmaker for the western GOM.

I should have stuck to my guns when I said yesterday that I thought 96L wouldn't develop much before late today. I let myself be stampeded into thinking a TD was imminent late last night.

That and Patrap's snide remark that I always lowball invests. LOL. Not this time.

Would anyone care to attempt a translation of: THE GEM GLOBAL CONTINUES TO BE CONTAMINATED BY SPURIOUS CIRCULATIONS OF TROPICAL ORIGIN" ?

Confused by multiple competing vortices? What "spurious circulations of tropical origin"? I'm beginning to hate the word spurious.

The circulation with 96L is going to have to slow down or else it's not going to have any time to develop into anything more than a tropical depression.
96L's circulation has plenty of time over water to develop.

I think the models are initializing too far north. The COC west of Belize appears to be the dominating COC at this point, in a similar area to where it "poofed" out last night. Hows that for a met term? LOL.

Toured the beach here in CC today. Surf clearing up, but lots of weed, and still a foot high - pretty strong onshore flow still.

On another note - why is NHC so reluctant to clasify 95 as a depression? It's small, but has definite closed circulation. 96 isn't there yet due to multiple COC's.

Anyone care to chime in?
Take a look at satellite imagery and MIMIC-TPW. The current low level circulation is located around the northern tip of the Yucatan and not east of Belize.
