Hurrican season is opening with a bang as according to reports, Two disturbances in the central and eastern Atlantic Ocean, Invest 99-L and Invest 90-L, are being monitored for potential development into the next tropical storm over the next few days. These tow disturbances are following behind Fiona, which is succumbing to the twin tropical nemeses of dry air and wind shear far from land in the central Atlantic Ocean.
Invest 99-L is currently a tropical wave — an area of low pressure without a closed, counterclockwise surface circulation — located about 1,000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. So far, 99-L has had to battle against dry air, similar to Fiona ahead of it. As of Sunday morning, some small thunderstorm clusters had begun to bubble up near the disturbance. CONTINUE
