Invest 94-L (Disturbance #1), a non-tropical low-pressure area located about 150 miles south-southeast of the North Carolina-South Carolina border continues to drift north, producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms over portions of southeastern and eastern North Carolina, including the Outer Banks.
This afternoon, the National Hurricane Center started tracking a second disturbance, an area of showers and thunderstorms located a few hundred miles east of Trinidad and Tobago that is associated with a westward-moving tropical wave. Some slow development of this system is possible over the next couple of days before upper-level winds become less conducive and the system begins to interact with the landmass of South America.
This system has a zero percent chance of further development. Regardless of development, this system could produce gusty winds and heavy rainfall over Trinidad and Tobago and the northeastern coastal sections of Venezuela through the middle of the week.
The National Hurricane also gives Invest 94-L just a zero percent chance of further development because environmental conditions are expected to remain unfavorable for significant development through tonight when the low should move inland over eastern North Carolina.
Invest 94-L is moving slowly toward the north-northeast, and a gradual turn toward the north is forecast later today.
Regardless of any further development, heavy rainfall could occur over portions of northeastern South Carolina and southeastern and eastern North Carolina through Wednesday.
