Invest 97L is no more
Cmc keeps calling for this front that just stalled in the Bahamas to blow up in the Bahamas & head north. The 18Z gfs again had it form into a very small storm in the Bahamas & dying as it hit S FL. Both models look to have this even weaker today. But what was once 97L is headed into the area so area to watch winner..
There is a 1008mb low in the southern Caribbean. Good news, lastnight it was a 1006mb low. It's in an area where the diffluence is enhanced. Should move off west & hit land.
Waves may be coming...Though models are tending down abit from the near 10'.
