TS Leslie
Bermuda is awaiting the impacts of Tropical Storm Leslie which should re-strengthen and bypass Bermuda to the east as a category one hurricane. The impacts aren't looking as severe for the island as thought a few days ago but still tropical storm force winds and locally heavy rainfall is a possibility and Bermuda is preparing in case tracks shift back to the west.

Hurricane Michael
Hurricane Michael is a category two, with winds at around 105 MPH, but there is no threat to any land masses and weakening is forecast.

Invest 90L
Invest 90L is fighting dry air and a TD/TS forming out of this one is not so likely anymore before it is absorbed by a cold front in the next day or two. It still may increase overall rainfall activity over the Northern and Central Florida Peninsula but no major impacts are currently anticipated. The NHC gives this just a 20% chance of TC formation by Sunday evening.

African Wave
There is one more tropical wave off the African coast which may slowly develop in the next few days. The NHC gives this only a 10% chance of TC formation by Sunday evening however beyond that time frame, the odds of development are much higher. No current grasp on which land masses is threatened, if any at all. Only Cape Verde Islands should get any impacts in the short term.

Quoting originalLT:
Thanks for the report Ben. I think that African wave will not make it across the Atlantic should it develope. It will be drawn Northward by the time it gets to the Central Atlantic, because of the weaknesses caused by Leslie and Michael in the high pressure system that sits out there.


Yeah--this one doesn't seem to be under the patterns that would make it much of a concern for land.
