FURTHER OUT

Keeping an eye on invest 96L in the Gulf of Mexico for potential at cyclone formation over the next few days (currently at 80% chance over the next 5 days).


Current model guidance has 96L crossing the southeast towards the east coast, moving offshore near the Carolinas and moving north. This could send a fun shot of windswell to RI early to mid next week.

For sure worth keeping an eye on over the next few days.
