INVEST 94L POTENTIAL THREAT TO THE CARIBBEAN, WHILE SEAN CONTINUES TO WEAKEN

INVEST 94L POTENTIAL THREAT TO THE CARIBBEAN, WHILE SEAN CONTINUES TO WEAKEN

October 15, 2023300Views

Currently there are two disturbances of interest that we are monitoring Invest 94L and Tropical Depression Sean. Invest 94L could potentially threaten the Virgin Islands.

Invest 94L  is approximately 1806  miles SE of Road Town and  is of greater concern to the Virgin Islands as it is poised to become Tammy within the next 48 hours. This means that a tropical storm could pass near the Virgin Islands this coming weekend. It is still too soon to have  a reliable forecast track or potential impacts, but given recent events of Philippe, we should watch this system closely

Sean has been weakening and expected to become a remnant low within the next 24 hours. The worst case scenario from this system is that we could get brief showers that may have lingered from the system midweek.

The Department of Disaster Management will continue to keenly monitor both disturbances as they move closer to the islands.
