A weak disturbance has entered the Caribbean on a low track. Just mentioning it for a heads-up. I trust this board will advise if it develops further.

Starting to pull more WNW. Also starting to develop. Models say should pass north of Belize.

You'll be hearing more of this over the next day or two.

Dr. Jeff Masters of wunderground.com stated in his blog today:

The upper-level low is forecast to slide westward and weaken over the next two days, bringing low wind shear of 5-10 knots over the disturbance Saturday and Sunday. The low shear combined with the warm (28.5C) water of the Western Caribbean should allow 94L to finally organize into a tropical depression as early as Saturday afternoon. NHC is giving 94L a high (>50% chance) of developing into a tropical depression by Sunday morning. Another Hurricane Hunter mission is scheduled to fly into 94L at 2 pm EDT Saturday. The disturbance has time to potentially strengthen into a tropical storm with 50 mph winds before coming ashore on the Yucatan Peninsula sometime between Sunday night and Monday afternoon. Passage over the Yucatan will no doubt significantly disrupt what should be a relatively weak system, and it is unclear what threat, if any, the storm will pose to the Gulf of Mexico coast. Once it does cross into the Gulf, wind shear should be low enough to permit development.

This is from one of my favorite weather forecasters: Ray Lightbown of Crowne Weather Services. http://www.crownweather.com/tropdisc.html

Pass the word along to folks on the Texas coast.

I wanted to point out a couple of things to consider regarding the potential of fairly rapid intensification starting around Monday: The model runs of the GFS, HWRF, GFDL, and Canadian are somewhat concerning as they are not only portraying something rather extreme, but that it will get there pretty rapidly. The reason why I am concerned is that it is the weekend and there are less individuals paying attention to the news and weather and any developments of this system. With this system just a tropical wave, most people are not paying attention to its progress and probably won't until bedtime Sunday night or during the Monday morning commute. So, please spread the word that there is a tropical system in the central Caribbean that could undergo rapid intensification starting Monday and may come ashore along the Texas coast on Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
I don't mean to be fear monger, but I do want to point out the potential long before any advisories, watches or warnings go up. Please continue to monitor the latest information regarding this system. I will be closely monitoring this system and will keep you all updated. Again, please spread the word to your coastal Texas friends and family that there is a tropical system in the central Caribbean that could undergo rapid intensification starting Monday and may come ashore along the Texas coast on Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
Finally, I would like to once again thank Chuck Nusbaum and the crew at Old City Web Services for hosting Crown Weather Services' website this hurricane season. Chuck and his crew at Old City Web Services are gracious and generous enough to host our website and keep us going. So, please thank them when you get a chance for hosting our site and keeping us going. Without them, we wouldn't be here!! So, thank you Chuck and everyone else at Old City Web Services!!
The next tropical weather discussion will be issued by 8 am EDT Sunday morning.

The upper-level low bringing high wind shear to 94L has weakened considerably in the past six hours, and is forecast to slide westward and continue to weaken over the next two days. Very low wind shear of 5 knots or less should be over the disturbance Sunday. The low shear combined with the warm (28.5C) water of the Western Caribbean should allow 94L to finally organize into a tropical depression by Sunday. NHC is giving 94L a high (>50% chance) of developing into a tropical depression by Monday morning. The disturbance has time to potentially strengthen into a tropical storm with 50 mph winds before coming ashore on the Yucatan Peninsula sometime between Sunday night and Monday afternoon. Passage over the Yucatan will no doubt significantly disrupt what should be a relatively weak system, and it is unclear what threat, if any, the storm will pose to the Gulf of Mexico coast.
