It looks like it is trying to get its act together but it is just too close to shore. I think it has started to move west, but that could just be a wobble.
I think we will know the outcome by 4 PM today. But, it looks like it will be tough for a named system to form.

Center is crossing the coast. Disorganized convection. Winds 15-20 kts max, generally less. Recon canceled. No TD today.

Agreed, in fact I think it's center is mostly inland now , but these weak systems with a large circulation can maintain and sometimes get even better organized over land. Just something to watch as the season winds down. It'll probably continue westward and die off on mainland mexico.

Sure seems like it has picked up speed and should be off land by tomorrow. We'll see what if anything happens then.

Here's where the center appears to me now. Look at the red circle. It is right on the Yucatan coast, just east of Chetumal:

I don't think it will get back offshore anytime soon. Should be meandering over the Yucatan over the next few days.

It does a loop inside Yucatan and gets out again to the NW Caribbean waters as a storm.


Is it me or are the models begining to hint that this system will head toward Cuba and then Florida or points to the east?


Boy the models map that Chad just posted show what Derek has been saying; that it will probably trap itself in the Bay of Campeche. Or just meander and stumble around. Only seeing one model taking it NE.
Looks good to me.

I think the center is still offshore and either not moving or maybe even drifting east. I'm not sure it's a certainty it will spend that much if any time over the Yucatan.

Not sure what your seeing, the models drive 94L onshore and spend a significant time over land. I doubt much will be left once it goes back over water. There was not much to begin with! :wink:

The models show a broad area of low pressure that drifts over the yucatan and then drifts back east. Coupled with the TPC's observation of slow, eratic movement I would say it is no certainty it moves in any particular direction for awhile. Visable loops certainly show the center offshore and hardly moving.

Something with 2007 is drying out forming systems. Some kind of undefined negative environment. If you look at the total coverage area of 94L this one has serious size. The drawing area goes all the way over to EPAC if it strengthens and draws on the potential energy in that drawing field. If it doubles back it should move into its heaviest convection bands. However this, like all the others, has pocked and dry convection.

We'll either see slow development of a strong storm or another 2007 poofer.


GFS takes it right over Boca Grande.

It appears to have become stationary off the coast, and while development may be slow I do see it better organized now then I did earlier today.

If it is able to maintain itself offshore then slow development would continue and possible a depression would form. We will need to monitor during the afternoon hours to determine furhter.

There's something wrong with the atmosphere because any system in this climatology at that location should be getting strong and growing deep convection at this point. We've all heard over and over that this is the only spot in the Atlantic where conditions are favorable, yet the one system that managed to form here is struggling just like the systems further east.

it is a little early yet for the strong storms to form in the NW Caribbean

They have in recent years been forming in the middle to late October

And, there is almost always a storm after the first cold front (the first cold front sometimes spawns the storm)

I disagree. October storms in this area historically take a long time to consolidate and develop. I wouldn't be surprised to see this take a few more days to develop while it sits down there waiting for something strong enough to pick it up. Land interaction is the only wildcard.

Wow. I thought for sure it would develop. Well I may be getting on the "season over" band wagon real soon. I just hope it's a cool winter down here this year. Maybe next year will be different. I'm glad no major landfalls this year in the U. S.. Have a great year everyone. If anything forms. I'm sure you'll will be here. :cold:

Living in South Florida and having a spinning low pressure in the western caribbean in mid-october I would not conclude the season over. Of course that's just me. :D
