MIAMI, Florida – NOAA’s National Hurricane Center issued a Tropical Weather Outlook at 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Monday, July 29, 2019, due the presence of Invest 95L that may become a tropical cyclone over South Florida.
Shower activity associated with a tropical wave over the eastern Caribbean Sea has decreased since yesterday (marked with a yellow “X” on the above map).
Invest 95L Projected Path
Invest 95L is expected to move west-northwestward across the Caribbean Sea and the Greater Antilles during the next few days bringing locally heavy rainfall and possibly some flooding across portions of these islands.
NHC forecasters say that atmospheric conditions as well as land effects should inhibit the development of this system as it moves west-northwestward for the next several days.
However, Invest 95L is could still produce an increase in cloudiness and thunderstorms over Puerto Rico, the Greater Antilles and portions of the Bahamas during the next few days.
According to the National Hurricane Center, there is a 10% chance that Invest 95L will form into a tropical cyclone within the next 5 days.
If the system becomes a tropical storm, the next name on the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane names list is Tropical Storm Chantal.
The 2019 Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.
