I would like yalls opinion on that healthy and vigorous looking tropical wave in the western Caribbean, it has sustained its thunderstorm convection all day long, is it possible that the NHC might highlight this system depending on what it looks like tomorrow? For me personally this wave has caught my attention

Back door East to West storms can be brutal.

Funny how the storms usually miss me and now they keep forming on top of me with never-ending thunder and lightning. It's been a long time since I've had this much lightning so close for so long.

0.56" so far with the cells expanding.
There's rain from the expanding cell 1/2 a mile from our home. :lol:

Would be shocked if there is more encroachment...

Things could get pretty active in the tropics around the 2nd and beyond, the 12z GFS is indicating lots of upward rising air will overspread the gulf, Caribbean and the MDR by the 2nd and persisting for quite a while, that is when the models are suggesting a backdoor front kay enter the picture as well, could be watching the gulf around that timeframe for any tropical mischief

18z GFS says we may be returning to a prolonged wet weather pattern next week after the front goes through,😄
