Yes indeed, and NHC will reactivate 97L I believe come late tomorrow and into Thursday as it gets near 60 degrees longitude. 97L, like other waves that has had to battle against the hostile conditions out in the Eastern Atlantic this season, has actually held its own imo. The 60 W longitude point westward seemingly has been the spot where these waves have slowly been able to try to develop and I think this situation with 97L will be not be any different.
The fact that NHC is arranging a possible Recon mission on Thursday shows their confidence that conditions will become at least marginally conducive for 97L to possibly develop by that time.
