Two African waves, 92L and 93L, worth watching

An African wave is near 13°N 35°W, about 700 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. This system, (Invest 92L), is moving west to west-northwest at 10 - 15 mph, and has the potential to develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm before arriving near the northern Lesser Antilles Islands early next week. Recent visible satellite loops show that 92L has less heavy thunderstorm activity near where it is trying to develop its circulation center than yesterday. Water vapor satellite loops that a large area of dry air lies just to the west of 92L, but the atmosphere in the immediate vicinity of 92L is moist. Even so, the decline of heavy thunderstorm activity since yesterday implies that dry air is probably working its way into 92L. The SHIPS model and University of Wisconsin CIMSS wind shear analysis are showing moderate wind shear of 10 - 15 knots affecting 92L. Sea surface temperatures are 26.5° - 27°C, which is very close to the 26.5°C threshold usually needed to support a tropical storm.


Figure 1. Morning satellite photo of Invest 92L and Invest 93L.

Forecast for 92L
Low to moderate wind shear of 5 - 15 knots is predicted along 92L's path over the coming three days, which should allow the storm to organize, assuming it can shut out any incursions of dry air that might intrude. The latest 00Z and 06Z model runs of the four best models for predicting tropical storm formation (GFS, ECMWF, NOGAPS, and UKMET) show weak development or no development of 92L, and NHC gave 92L a 30% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Saturday morning in their 8am outlook. A steady west to west-northwest motion for 92L is predicted by all of the models, which would put the storm in the vicinity of the northern Lesser Antilles Islands by Sunday. On Saturday and Sunday, 92L is expected to enter a region where an upper-level low pressure system will bring high wind shear of 20 knots to the storm, which should slow development. This upper-level low is also expected to turn 92L more to the northwest, so the storm is likely to pass north of the Lesser Antilles, though may pass close enough to give heavy rains to the northernmost islands. It is too early to know if 92L will recurve out to sea and potentially threaten Bermuda, or continue to the northwest towards the U.S. East Coast.

93L
An African wave that emerged off the coast of Africa is near 10°N 22°W, a few hundred miles south of the Cape Verde Islands. This system, (Invest 93L), is also moving west at 10 - 15 mph, and has the potential to develop into a tropical depression or tropical storm before arriving near the northern Lesser Antilles Islands near the middle of next week. Recent visible satellite loops show that 93L has a decent amount of heavy thunderstorms, but this activity is not well organized. There is not much spin associated with 93L yet. 93L is fairly well-protected from dry air to its north and west. The SHIPS model and University of Wisconsin CIMSS wind shear analysis are showing moderate wind shear of 10 - 20 knots affecting 93L. Sea surface temperatures are 27.5°C, which is one degree above the 26.5°C threshold usually needed to support a tropical storm.

Forecast for 93L
Moderate wind shear below 20 knots is predicted along 93L's path over the coming five days, which should allow the storm to steadily organize. 93L is about 600 miles east of 92L, which is close enough that the two systems may interfere with each others' organization. The latest 00Z and 06Z model runs of the four best models for predicting tropical storm formation (GFS, ECMWF, NOGAPS, and UKMET), have only one model, the GFS, that is indicating significant development of 93L. This model brings 93L near the northern Lesser Antilles Islands by Wednesday. NHC gave 93L a 20% chance of developing into a tropical depression by Saturday morning in their 8am outlook. Due to moister air, the potential for less wind shear, and a more southerly track, 93L is probably a greater threat to the Lesser Antilles than 92L.

Quoting hydrus:
The weaker it is while crossing the Atlantic, the further west it will track. There are a lot of different scenarios for 93L. If it does actually enter the Caribbean, this system will be nothing short of dangerous. If for some reason it ends up north of the Leeward Islands, I believe it has a decent chance of recurvature..It is worth mentioning that if the track is just north or south of the Greater Antilles, it most likely will effect Florida and possibly the eastern gulf..jmo
thanks for the lesson:) do you know what the current set up is for high pressure? is it not the high pressure steerring these systems? do you know where i can get a steering current map or outlook? tia

If there's a met term for what happened in #1674 I'd sure like to know what it is.

It's just a downlink/processing error from one of the satellite passes. (Note that the error is wider near the top of the image; that's due to the distortions inherent in the Mercator projection used, which causes increasing distortion as one moves away from the Equator.)

Everyone seems very excited this morning about these new invests.

To me it still looks like there are several areas of "disturbed weather" out there.... but none of these invests seem imminent to develop. None of them seem likely to become strong. And none of them pose any threat to land in the NEAR future.

I feel like everyones guess right now is just that... a guess. Until these storms look halfway decent there is no telling if they will form, how strong they'll be, or where they'll go.

I still get the general impression 93 is the only one even worth paying any attention to (at least for now), and even that is so weak and so far down the road.....


well 94L might be a threat to the SE coast as well..I hate being redundant but its really a wait and see for ALL these storms..mother nature always has tricks up her sleeves..

no way! it is bound to take a more northern track than that, don't you think? i thought the high was going to turn it to The northwest once it got to the islands. is the high not going to be where it was expected to be? will the gulf coast have to worry about this in your opinion? tia!

that would be surprising especially given the high pressure pattern that is supposed to set up

Most of the computer models today take 93L as a Caribbean trucker. Was fully expecting it to loose convection like it did overnight and apparently the NHC was too, will over the next few days become gradually better consolidated, with the possibility of a TD on Sunday, same deal with 92L.. though throughout the day I expect 92L to loose its convection too, it has zip convergence. 94L as it heads SW has favorable upper level conditions but has a lot of dry air around it, so gradual organization is possible. I expect if it will develop it will do so while completing its turn out to sea. 95L might be the most immediate threat to develop, as the NHC has tagged it 30% when it has 48 hours IMO to develop.
