Hurricane Hunters entering Invest 93 now; Depression could form later today
Thunderstorms redeveloped very close to the center of Invest 93 last night, but this trend did not continue through the morning hours. Wind shear and dry air continue to stunt the growth or intensification of this wave of low pressure. Nonetheless, NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft have been deployed to fly through the system this afternoon and we will pass along their findings.
Not much has changed in the overall forecast for this tropical development, with most reliable forecast models still indicating a weak tropical storm approaching the Lesser Antilles this weekend and potentially moving closer to the Bahamas early next week. As with any newly developed system, though, forecast confidence remains low and there is still plenty of time to watch what becomes of Invest 93.
