95L a threat to develop into Sub-Tropical Storm Chris 6/18/2012
Good afternoon and welcome to my tropical weather update for Monday, June 18th, 2012. We have one main area to talk about today and that is Invest 95L over the North Atlantic, just north of Bermuda. Maximum sustained winds are 45mph with a pressure of 1005mb, and it appears possible that if organization continues and the system can manage to separate from the front it is attached to we may end up with a brief and short lived Sub-Tropical Storm, the 3rd named storm of the season.
(figure 1. Invest 95L located over the Atlantic)
Satellite shows that the system is well organized with spiral banding on all quads, but the convection is weak and typical of a sub-tropical system. If this develops later today or tomorrow do not expect a very strong system and it might not even become a purely tropical system.
In the event that 95L does become Sub-Tropical Storm Chris, I will update this blog and tomorrow will have a full update with the threat in the Caribbean.
