An elongated area of a low-pressure system (Invest 92 L -Disturbance #9) located about 500 miles East of the Windward Island’s is producing a wide area of showers and thunderstorms, according to NOAA’s National Hurricane Center in Miami.
While it is still too early to fully detect the actual projected path of the storm system, The Hurricane Center has issued a Tropical Weather Outlook early Tuesday. Recent satellite imagery suggests the system does not yet have a well-defined center, but data from an NOAA buoy indicates that the system is producing near tropical-storm-force winds.
U.S Air Reserve Hurricane Hunter Aircrafts are scheduled to investigate the system further later this afternoon. Development is favorable over the next couple of days (90% tropical cyclone formation within the next 5-days), and the next name on the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Names List is Isaias.
This system is the ninth disturbance of the 2020 Hurricane Season and has the potential to affect Florida over the coming weekend.
