|(Tropical Storm Ophelia)|
A new tropical wave has emerged off the coast of Africa and is displaying some nice rotation. It has been designated Invest 90L by the Hurricane Center today. It does not have full model support for development, but a couple of the computer models do develop this into the next tropical storm, and the NHC is giving it an 80% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours. The next name on the list is Philippe. The trending direction of travel for 90L is northwest into the open Atlantic.
