In the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean, there are a couple areas of interest that we are monitoring for further development in the Atlantic Basin.

Invest 97-L
After analysis of Satellite, Buoy Data & Dropsonde Data, there is a broad area of low pressure associated with a Tropical Wave that is centered about 350 miles East of the Lesser Antilles.
Cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms associated with this system remain disorganized with very little evidence of any LLC (Low Level Circulation).
Environmental conditions are NOT conducive for development. However, upper level features could change in favor of some development as this disturbance emerges into the Western Caribbean Sea on days 4 or 5.
This system has a low chance (<10%) of becoming a Tropical Cyclone during the next 48 hours and a LOW chance (20%) of becoming a Tropical Cyclone during the next 5 days as it moves WNW near 15mph.

Invest 96-L
A broad area of low pressure associated with a Tropical Wave is over the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, between the Cape Verde Islands and the coast of Africa.
Cloudiness, showers and thunderstorms associated with this system are beginning to become somewhat organized. However, environmental conditions have become less favorable for development and we have actually seen this disturbance begin to weaken a bit. The potential for this system to become a Tropical Depression has diminished, today.
This system has a LOW chance (20%) of becoming a Tropical Cyclone during the next 48 hours and a LOW chance (20%) of becoming a Tropical Cyclone during the next 5 days as this system moves to the WNW and over the Eastern Atlantic.

Elsewhere, development is not expected during the next 48 hours.
