Caribbean area moving northwest

7-28pmHOLT, Fla., July 28, 2019–The National Hurricane Center has identified an area in the southeastern Caribbean that could develop.

Identified by the NHC as Invest 95, it consists of a persistent area of cloudiness and thunderstorms located with a tropical wave.

This disturbance is expected to move west-northwest to northwest across the north-central Caribbean Sea during the next few days.

Little development of the disturbance is expected due to interaction with land.  However, the system is forecast to emerge over the Straits of Florida by the end of the week where environmental conditions could be a little more conducive for development to occur, according to the NHC.

For now, the NHC gives this a low chance of 20 percent to develop further during the next five days of the forecast period.

Should it develop, this would be the fourth system of the 2019 hurricane season behind Subtropical Storm Andrea, Hurricane Barry and Tropical Depression Three.
