Invest 90 has certainly become better organized over the past twenty-four hours.  In fact, the National Hurricane Center had this system at zero percent on Monday, and now it has a seventy percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next two days.  The air force reconnaissance plane will be flying into the system to investigate it to see if we in fact do have a tropical depression already.  Don't be surprised one bit if this system becomes a tropical depression or storm later today or tonight.

Where is this system headed?  That is the question, and until they locate the exact location of the low pressure, it's hard to take the model runs serious.  The model graphic is attached below, notice how spread out they are at this point.  These will be in a much better agreement once the center of circulation has been located.

We are always tracking the tropics here in the STORMTRACKER33 Weather Center, and we will keep you updated with up to the minute information as it becomes available. Also, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook @STORMTRACKER33 for even more updates.
