Monitoring 99-L to the east; a Gulf of Mexico disturbance of interest

Posted:

A disorganized and weak area of low pressure (99L) located between the northeastern and the coast of Cuba continues to keep forecasters guessing as it moves west-northwest at about 10-mph. Currently, upper-level winds remain unfavorable for development, but should become a little more conducive for development as the system approaches the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week.
