Atlantic Hurricane Basin

Nov 14, 2018

There are no organized tropical features across the Atlantic Basin at this time.

A tropical wave referred to as Invest 96L is now over Hispaniola. This tropical wave is interacting with a weak upper level system producing a large area of clouds, showers and thunderstorms. Satellite images still suggest this system remains disorganized with no signs of a low level circulation feature. Environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive to development of this system.

Even though development of this system looks unlikely the whole system will continue to bring locally heavy rainfall to the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola today then over Turks and Caicos islands and into the southern Bahamas tonight and Thursday. This heavy rainfall will lead to flash flooding and higher terrain mudslides. Eventually this system will merge with a cold front and this could bring very heavy rainfall to Bermuda Friday night into Saturday of this coming weekend.

The rest of the Atlantic Basin remains relatively quiet and development looks unlikely elsewhere through at least early next week.
