93L in Eastern Atlantic Growing More Organized ~Dr. Jeff Masters, Wunderground
Figure 1. Analysis of the Saharan Air Layer (SAL) made at 8 am EDT Monday July 28, 2014 using data from the Meteosat-9 satellite. Dry, dusty air was present from the coast of Africa westwards across the tropical Atlantic, but was located well to the north of tropical disturbance 93L.

~Editilla Rotellas~ We're gonna keep an Eye on this one, since Dr. Masters has an uncanny ability for picking winners during Hurricane Season.
An area of disturbed weather located near 10°N, 33°W at 8 am EDT Monday, about 500 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, was designated Invest 93L by NHC early Monday morning. This disturbance is a more serious threat than Tropical Depression Two of last week, and has the potential to develop into a strong tropical storm before reaching the Lesser Antilles Islands on Friday or Saturday. Visible satellite loops on Monday morning showed that the disturbance had only a modest amount of spin, but infrared satellite images showed that the system's heavy thunderstorm activity had increased significantly since Sunday. Wind shear was light, 5 - 10 knots, which should aid development. Ocean temperatures were decent for development, about 27.5°C. Water vapor satellite loops showed that the atmosphere was reasonably moist in the area, though a large area of dry air lay a few hundred miles to the north. Read more.

~One of the benefits of Generalized Anxiety Disorder is the squirrels don’t give a damn about seven hours of jet lag, or yesterday’s epic 25 our travel day. A man wakes up to pee after a certain amount of sleep, the merciless digital clock reads 8:00 and they leap to their wheels: the squeaks of anxiety over things to be done, the horrible cogs begin to turn.
