The Weather Authority is tracking a tropical wave designated as Invest 95L in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean.

Invest 95L is located several hundred miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands and continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorm activity.

According to the National Hurricane Center, the chance of further development within the next 48 hours is around 60%.

The NHC reports an 80% chance of further development over the next seven days.

The Weather Authority Meteorologist Juliana Mejia said, ” The steering pattern of Invest 95L reads that this area of high pressure in the Northern Atlantic will keep its due western track as it approaches and enters the Caribbean. Early spaghetti models read that this will continue to move west into South America.”

Environmental conditions are forecast to be unusually conducive for late June across the central and western tropical Atlantic, and further development of this system is anticipated.

A tropical depression or tropical storm is likely to form this weekend several hundred miles east of the Windward Islands while the system moves westward at 15 to 20 mph.

If further development happens, the next named storm will be Beryl.
