Invest area in the Atlantic

There is an area in the Atlantic that forecasters and forecaster-wannabes are watching.  Can you find it?


Here’s the center this morning and some forecast tracks:

Some of the models are spinning it up into a hurricane.  I’ve seen some chatter about it hitting New Orleans – that’s insane.  It could also hit Florida, or Georgia, or be the next Sandy and wipe out the Northeast.  All useless speculation at this point. NHC gives it a “medium” chance of becoming a storm in the next couple of days.   The advanced HWRF model does spin it up into a weak hurricane before landfall on Hispaniola.  We’ll know better if and when it organizes.
