STORMTRACKER33 — We now have three areas of focus in the tropics. Tropical Depression #8 has formed just off the coast of Honduras. It should be inland by tomorrow, possibly intensifying to a tropical storm.
Invest 97L has the best potential to be a storm affecting the United States. Early model runs are taking it through the Northern Caribbean and possibly towards the East Coast. Right now, chances are low for development. We will have to watch this tropical wave very closely.
Invest 98L is going to be a fish storm and stay well away from land. It is a suspect spot just off the coast of Africa.
