Invest 96L is located off the coast of Africa. It is being given a 40% chance of developing in the next 2 days and the same percentage for their 5 day outlook. The NHC mentions that it is heading in the direction of a hostile environment. I personally don't see 96L developing in the short term but some models take 96L northwards and then loops it back south. We'll see what happens if that is the case.

97L has just been called west of the Leeward Islands. It's convection has increased as of late and it looks decent. At 8AM this morning the NHC gave it 0% for 2 days, 10% for 5 days. I'd put the odds higher as I am sure the NHC will be doing within the hour. I believe that this storm has a chance to become Gabrielle down the road.

There is also a Tropical Depression in the Eastern Pacific that is expected to become a weak Tropical Storm in the future but die before affecting anyone.
