Tropical Storm Karen

KarenPosition: 11.1 N 41.0 W. [10PM CDT] [UPDATED}
Movement: West-Northwest [285°] near 14 mph.
Maximum sustained winds: 40 mph.
Wind Gusts: 50 mph.
Tropical Storm Wind Radius: 70 miles.
Minimum central pressure: 1005 mb.

Currently 1355 miles East of the southern Windward Islands [the lower islands of the Lesser Antilles] and still looking like a fish botherer.

Tropical Depression Thirteen [the former Invest 94L]
Position: 21.7 N 95.4 W. [10PM CDT]
Movement: West [260°] near 5 mph.
Maximum sustained winds: 30 mph.
Wind Gusts: 40 mph.
Minimum central pressure: 1008 mb.

Currently 165 miles East-Southeast of Tampico in the Gulf of Mexico.

Invest 97 is West of the Lesser Antilles but conditions are not good for much development. It looks like it will pass over Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, eastern Cuba, and then turn North into South Florida on the weekend. No guarantees with tropical weather.

There’s a weakness in the ridge that is providing the steering and there will be a turn to the North.

I really want TD 13 to go ashore somewhere. I don’t like storms that hang around in the Bay of Campeche. If the wind shear dies they can take off.
