99 & 90

The two invests in the atlantic have we here today. There is 90L (left circle) and 99L (right circle). Let's start with 99L. As you can see in the image that I posted on this site (previous entry), it's starting to go into the images of Noaa. Along with that, convection isn't as strong as it was six hours ago. It is traveling west, and it has a 50% chance of forming into a tropical cyclone.
Now we go to the more interesting part; 90L. It was just declared today, and convection is rapidly firing like a minigun. As it is doing so, it is taking a westnorthwest track, doing so it is also strengthening over the warm waters of the Caribbean sea. Development of 90L, if any, will be slow within the next three days. If it does develop, however, then it will likely hit Cuba as a tropical storm. I am giving this system a 40% chance of development.
