New Tropical Development

A tropical wave in the northwest Caribbean is given a “high” chance by hurricane forecasters in Miami of becoming the next tropical cyclone.

The Tuesday evening satellite image shows a cluster of clouds with a slight hint of rotation south of Cuba. Forecast models indicate that this feature will likely meander in the western Caribbean for a number of days. It could become a tropical depression or tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours. If it were to become strong enough to be a named storm, it would be called Richard.
