Tropical Wave Southwest of Cape Verde Islands
      #89231 - Mon Aug 30 2010 08:35 PM

Active tropical low near 10N 28W at 31/00Z moving west at 16 knots. Strong convection with pressure around 1007MB - at the moment it actually looks better than Fiona. This system may be far enough to the south that the SAL to the north will not be as significant a deterrent toward future development.

Dvorak T-numbers from SSD are rating it 1.0. (reference)

It has just come into GOES range, so we should have a better view of it tomorrow. Models are not initializing the system yet. Tomorrow will tell if this will form or fizzle, I think.

98L does not that look really good at this time, but I think it will have a better chance in 2-3 days for some development. The SAL seems to be influencing it right now, and until it can distance itself some more, its chance for development will be low. I am noticing a circulation within the clouds/convection of 98L today.
