INVEST 98L ... 30th JULY 2008 ... 1430 BST
Heavy rain is affecting Tobago thanks to a combination of the nearby ITCZ and a Tropical Wave that is just about to move into the Caribbean.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Invest 98L is developing nicely ... I have had a close look at this and I am sure there is an eye developing or, at least, a centre. This looks like developing into a Tropical Depression or Storm as it affects the Cape Verde Islands but there is a lot of dry Saharan Dusty Weather ahead so I am not sure if there is much chance of any further development.
In any case ... from this latitude, this system is unlikely to affect the Caribbean and could spend it's whole life over the Atlantic Ocean.
I will keep watching.
