System developing in the Caribean - 5:45 pm EDT


Could Brett be on the way? As I discussed before, in the same area that bore Arlene, another tropical system seems to be developing. A hurricane hunter has already been scheduled to check it out.

From NHC:
AN AREA OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LOCATED OVER THE CENTRAL
CARIBBEAN SEA ABOUT 200 MILES SOUTHEAST OF JAMAICA IS ASSOCIATED
WITH A SURFACE TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE. THIS SYSTEM HAS BECOME A
LITTLE BETTER ORGANIZED THIS AFTERNOON...AND REPORTS FROM TWO NOAA
BUOYS INDICATE SURFACE PRESSURES ARE LOWER THAN NORMAL AND ARE
CONTINUING TO SLOWLY FALL IN THE AREA. SOME ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT
OF THE SYSTEM IS POSSIBLE OVER THE NEXT DAY OR TWO AS IT MOVES
SLOWLY NORTHWESTWARD. AN AIR FORCE RESERVE RECONNAISSANCE AIRCRAFT
IS SCHEDULED TO INVESTIGATE THE SYSTEM TOMORROW...IF NECESSARY.
Tracking God's Fury:
ATLANTIC
Tropical Storm Maria
Tropical Storm Nate
Hurricane Ophelia
EASTERN PACIFIC

    What steers hurricanes?
    What is eyewall replacement?
