Invest 99-L Could Head Toward U.S. Soon



    (Published Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2016)

    An area of low pressure over the Leeward Islands could be our next Tropical Storm.

    Showers and storms are starting to organize but as of this morning there are no signs of circulation. Hurricane Hunters will further investigate the disturbance this morning.

    Gusty winds, heavy rains, flash floods and mudslides will be the biggest threats for the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, and the southeastern and central Bahamas in the coming days.

    This storm could pose a threat to the U.S. early next week. An area of high pressure will steer the disturbance towards Florida and possibly the Gulf of Mexico. It is too early to know for sure if this will play out, but it is certainly something to watch.
