99L- The Neverending Story

By: charlottefl, 12:57 PM GMT on August 27, 2016

Seems that 99L has been one step behind since it's genesis. Everything is in motion & the atmosphere is very fluid. Conditions change. It appears that the environment in the Atlantic is pretty complex right now. Forecasts have called for conditions to become more favorable for development, which we saw for a short time yesterday, and 99L did put on a little bit of a show. I feel like Haiti did a lot more damage to 99L's circulation that anyon...

There are now 2 pieces of energy left from 93L, although according to surface maps the low is centered just to the south of Jamaica this morning.
