The disturbance in the Caribbean has now been designated Invest 95L, and is slowly trying to get its act together. It looks like the main low has moved over the Yucatan Peninsula and will not be able to further develop.

There is a developing situation near the Florida peninsula right now. Wind and rain persisted throughout the day today, as a cyclone tries to develop in the area. I snapped off a little video on my I-Phone as we were visiting family in New Smyrna Beach.Link There are 3 features affecting the weather here. There is a sur...
