Chance of development for invest 93-L drops to 10 percent

The National Hurricane Center gives the disturbed weather a 10-percent chance of tropical cyclone development.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The National Hurricane Center (NHC) on Wednesday morning lowered the odds of development of Invest 93-L to 10-percent.

Invest 93-L is a tropical wave located east of the Windward Islands.

Although Invest 93-L continues to produce an area of showers and thunderstorms, that activity remains confined to the east of the center due to strong upper-level winds.  In addition, recent satellite data indicate that the circulation is a little less defined than it was yesterday.  

Some slight development of this system is still possible today while it moves westward to west-northwestward, but upper-level winds are expected to become even less favorable for development tonight and Wednesday.

If this system becomes a tropical storm or hurricane, the name will be Epsilon. The NHC gives Invest 93-L a 10-percent chance of tropical cyclone formation within the next five days.
