That weather area they are talking about, is now moving towards the NW, over Cuba into the Gulf. It is not having any significant effect on our weather, except we are in the low pressure area, so some cloud coming down from it over the Yucatan. We have had a small ITCZ swell-up over central Belize, there have been small patches of rain in many isolated parts of Belize for much of the day, and continuing, probably through the night.
"We continue to monitor a low pressure center around 60 miles east of the northern coast of Belize. This system has been designated Invest 93L and will track off to the northwest passing near the northeastern portion of the Yucatan Peninsula later today and tonight before entering the southern Gulf of Mexico tomorrow. The National Hurricane Center has tentatively scheduled an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft to investigate Invest 93L Monday.
Invest 93L is currently located just off the coast of northern Belize and is a relatively broad and weak 1007-mb low pressure center. Current satellite imagery continues to show robust but disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity in association with Invest 93L. This thunderstorm activity will continue to bring downpours today and tonight to portions of Belize, the Yucatan Peninsula, western Cuba and northern Honduras. Invest 93L will drift northwestward over the next 24 hours, passing over or very near to the northeastern corner of the Yucatan Peninsula tonight before entering the southern Gulf of Mexico tomorrow. At this point, once Invest 93L is pulling away from the land mass of the Yucatan and into the sufficiently warm waters of the southern Gulf of Mexico, further development and organization will be increasingly likely. Strong shear that has been plaguing the Gulf is projected to weaken somewhat across the central and eastern Gulf over the next day or two. This lessening shear, combined with very warm sea-surface temperatures, will give Invest 93L an opportunity to strengthen and organize over the next day or two."
The other tropical disturbance, Invest 92-L, which is located about 800 miles to the east-southeast of the southern Lesser Antilles has become better organized today.
Invest 92-L is forecast to quickly move west to west-northwestward and will move directly over the southern Lesser Antilles and Barbados during Monday night and Tuesday with 50 to 60 mph winds, squalls of heavy rainfall and very hazardous marine conditions.
Once this system moves into the eastern Caribbean, it is expected to encounter very strong southerly wind shear and rapid weakening and dissipation is expected by Wednesday.
