There are no threats to the Gulf from any tropical development this week, although a couple of tropical waves are being monitored by the National Hurricane Center for possible development this week in the southern Atlantic.

As of Monday morning Invest 95L was located about 750 miles east of the Windward Islands and is moving westward at about 15 mph, according to the hurricane center.

This system has a 50 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression in the next 48 hours, the center says. The associated thunderstorm activity does show some signs organization, but still lacks a defined center.

Regardless of development, the NHC stressed, the system is expected to bring heavy rainfall and gusty winds to portions of the Lesser Antilles beginning late tomorrow.

A hurricane hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the area Monday if necessary.

After that, less favourable upper-level winds are expected to hinder additional development.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami will likely hand off forecasting for Fernanda to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu late this week as Fernanda tracks into its forecast area.
