Invest 98-L could go to the Gulf of Mexico next week

INVEST 98-L may strengthen into a tropical depression over the next few days

There is a high potential for growth in the next 2 days



Air. one of a kind. Tell us about it. We have a lot to see in the tropics, but what really got our attention and what we all need to pay attention to is this one investment 98 EL so it’s near the Windward Islands. Take a look at your screen now. It’s just a tropical wave and investment. It has gusting winds of 35 mph. However, you can see where it is. It is heading towards the Caribbean towards Alvin Moore Island. It is likely to move to the Caribbean by tomorrow. It is very likely to develop into a tropical depression over the next few days. So 70% chance of growth within the next two days? 90% chance of it in the next five days. Models agree that it’s really going to evolve once it moves to the Caribbean. From there, it could potentially turn into a tropical storm, perhaps a hurricane, and it would continue to move into the Caribbean. Now, something to look out for, though, and here’s something worth noting. Check out this model spread. It can land anywhere in the Caribbean and it will decide exactly where it goes once it gets to the Gulf of Mexico. Models currently agree that the system is moving towards the Gulf of Mexico. But just to show you what I mean, here’s the GFS model, the American model. Note that it is close to the Yucatan Peninsula. This will bring it closer to the northern Gulf Coast. Meanwhile, the European model has surpassed Cuba. He will send it to South Florida. So we don’t know where it’s going right now. Once it enters the bay. A lot can change between now and then. Note that this is seven days away. So a week away when we start to see it get closer and closer to the bay. So a lot can change. It remains to be seen, but it is not a direct threat to us. immediately. In the meantime, there are lots of other things to do. Fortunately, none of them threaten America. Our eyes are on Hurricane Fiona, a major four hurricane. Look at that monster. IT has an eye. There. It passed through the Turks and Caicos Islands as a Category Three hurricane. Now, once again, a Category Four hurricane with sustained winds of 130 mph. It is expected to strengthen to 140 mph by this evening. From there it will head towards Bermuda. The center will go west of Bermuda. It will still remain in the category four hurricane, around 130 mph. So tropical storm status is expected in Bermuda. It is possible that they may attain some hurricane status from there as well or continue to move north toward Canada, however, as a system with near 100 mph. So there’s still a pretty strong system out there. After that it will continue to move north. Meanwhile, we have Gaston, a tropical storm. This is the track it is taking. It’s going to do a little loop in there. It is very close to the Azores, but again, there is no threat to us. It’s there in the Atlantic. We are also moving off the coast of Africa. He is about to turn north. Moderate growth potential within the next five days. There is no danger for us. And then we’ll see this wave here in the Atlantic. Less likely to develop within the next five days. Right now, we’re dealing with summer and more. It’s already in Gulfport at 93 Degrees, Slidell Bogalusa, 91 Belle Chase and Burras. Feeling hotter than this? It feels like 104 degrees in SLIDELL right now. Looks like 102 in Gulfport. 100 and Homa, 104 in Buras. Radar is dry now. There is only a 10% chance of rain today. Chances of rain are less. Lots of sunshine. Warm temperatures, mainly in the mid-nineties with high temperatures with heat index values ​​close to 100 degrees. It’s hard to believe that the fall will start tomorrow. It is close to record heat today. Records 96 will close tomorrow, Records 95. First Day of Fall. And I’m going with a forecast of 95 degrees. So to get into the fall, we can put that record out there. Friday will also be close to that. Again, the autumnal equinox is tomorrow at around 8:04 p.m. Friday is the first full day of fall. Although it will still feel like heat. We need some fall weather that looks like it will arrive by next week. Yes, there is relief in sight. Effect of severe cold from Monday, some good weather

The WDSU weather team is closely monitoring several areas of the tropics. The main area of ​​interest for us is Investment 98-L. Tropical Wave Invest 98-L is a few hundred miles east of the Windward Islands. The system has a high probability of becoming a tropical depression in two days and may move into the Gulf of Mexico by next week. Invest 98-L is forecast to move into the Windward Islands late Wednesday early Thursday. The GFS forecast model moves Invest 98-L into the Caribbean on Thursday, south of the Dominican Republic by Friday, south of Jamaica on Sunday, and then closer to Cuba by Tuesday. It will move into the warm waters of the Caribbean. Water temperatures are in the mid to upper 80s. Wind shear is low. This is the perfect condition for development. Forecast models have been consistent in bringing the system to bay by the end of next week. But there is still a lot of uncertainty. The models so far may have bigger swings. In fact, the GFS model pushed it toward the Yucatan Peninsula earlier in the week, and has now moved closer to western Cuba and Florida by next weekend. The forecast model will see major changes in the coming days. Steering currents will be southwesterly winds ahead of a cold front passing through our region on Monday. Bermuda High will also play a role in turning the system north. The question is whether the tall building behind the cold front will play any role. It’s too far to say for sure. This is a situation where you know there is something to monitor, and you go about your business. In addition to that system, we’re seeing major Hurricane Fiona with winds of 130mph, 65 mph winds in Tropical Storm Gaston in the north-central Atlantic Ocean with a moderate chance of a tropical wave development over Africa on Thursday Estimated to go into Atlantic waters. Another tropical wave to the west of Cabo Verde Islands in the next five days, and with a low probability of development in the next 5 days. Click here for more information on Fiona.
