The blob race is on

Filed under: Tropical — Erin @ 2:07 pm

Our three invests have been intensifying all day. All of them have developed banding features and notable rotation. The race is on to see which one is deemed TD 12 first.

96L is a massive system. The cyclonic rotation is very evident on it and I am surprised that it hasn’t been called a TD yet. The size of this storm’s rotation could be an impediment to rapid development, as well as its latitude.

97L has made quite the comeback today from the exposed swirl it was earlier. Models take this to a hurricane, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it happen.

94L is sheared on the west side, but it too has put on a burst of convection today. It seems headed for Mexico and doesn’t appear likely to have the chance to develop into a powerful system.
