Hurricane Center tracking Invest #96L

Hurricane Center tracking Invest #96L

By Michelle Cunningham. CREATED Aug 19, 2014

CAPE CORAL, Fla. - The National Hurricane Center is officially tracking Invest #96L.  Over the next five days, this system has a 40% chance of development.  The system is going to enter an environment more conducive to intensification.  We have a lot of time to continue to watch this system and there is no reason to panic.  This system is still about 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

One of the more reliable tropical models has consistently shown some development of this system over the last three model runs.  No track or intensity has yet been determined but indications are IF this does develop it would be some time next week.  Please keep in mind that some of the long range models may show a storm hitting the coast 7-10 days out, but a lot can change with the tropics over just a few days.  Please stay focused on the forecasts showing three or four days out for better certainty on what may happen.
