WATCHING THE TROPICS-DAY #93

Posted: Updated:

It is September, the most active month of the year for tropical cyclone development. I am watching one system in particular.

A well-defined low pressure center is located about 100 miles east of the central Lesser Antilles. This system has been given the designation 97-L. This system has become better organized today and conditions are favorable for further development. The one inhibiting factor is dry air in the middle and upper-levels of the atmosphere. I'll keep watching to see if 97-L can overcome the dry air and become a tropical cyclone.

Elsewhere, there are no systems that show any promise of tropical cyclone formation through Labor Day.

I'll post another update tomorrow.
