Gabrielle moves closer to shore; 3 invests to watch.

Hey guys. I regret that I couldn't post for the last half of Hurricane Dean's life or Hurricane Felix, but things have been really busy around here. Today we have a few tropical areas to be concerned about. Firstly TS Gabrielle is nearing the NC coast. This system is still very poorly organized and doesn't have much time to strengthen further. I believe a 55mph TS is the most North Carolina will see out of this one.

Three separate invests were labeled this morning at the same time. Invest 90L, located in the southern GOM north of the Yucatan channel, is a disorganized area of t-storms which may have a chance to develop after wind shear lightens up over the area. This system will be moving NW towards the Texas gulf coast and residents in Texas and Louisiana should watch this system. Invest 91L, located west of the Cape Verde islands in the central Atlantic, is another disorganized area of t-storms with a ragged and elongated circulation shown by QuikScat. This system is under only 10 knots of shear and should remain that way for the next few days. Given time I think this will develop into a TD. A trough to the north may direct 91L on a more northwesterly course in a couple days. Our third system, Invest 92L, is just northeast of the Antilles Islands this morning. QuikScat shows nothing more than a weak wave, but there is evidence of a circulation trying to form. The system is quite small, with a small cluster of thunderstorms over the "center". This system should also be closely watched as it moves WNW towards the Bahamas.

None of the reliable global computer models develop any of these disturbances, but considering that we are in the middle of the peak of the hurricane season all blobs should be watched closely.

We shall see what happens!
