Early morning update on the tropics and Long Island weather:
- It still looks likely that we will have 2 tropical systems next week. Invest 91L is down to a 20% chance of tropical development, but Invest 92L is at 80% and the one behind it is at 60% within the next 5 days.
- Both the Euro ensembles (2nd image) and GFS ensembles (3rd image) are showing that there is a good chance that both of these systems (likely named Paulette and Rene) will curve north into the middle of the Atlantic before getting to the east coast of the United States.
