Tracking the Tropics: Invest 91L is located east of the Caribbean. It is a tropical wave that will move into the Caribbean by mid-week and conditions are favorable for it to develop into a tropical depression. NHC is giving this system a medium chance to develop.
There is a large area of low pressure along a tropical wave south of the Cabo Verde Islands. The system is moving to the west and conditions are favorable for some development. A tropical depression could develop by that time. The system will turn to the northwest or north and stay out at sea by the end of the week. NHC is giving this system a high chance to develop.
