"94L" Forms off the Florida Coast

The above visible satellite image was taken about an hour ago and shows an area of disturbed weather, dubbed "Invest 94L", off the East coast of Florida.  This system is currently drifting toward the West/Southwest at 5 to 10 mph.

Conditions in the middle atmosphere are not currently conducive for any rapid development or organization of this system, however conditions may become more favorable for development on Monday or Tuesday.

Below is a composite image showing what the latest computer forecast model tracks are for this system.  The beginning point in time is today at 7am Central Time.  The ending point is 120 hours from now (Friday at 7am Central Time):

Obviously residents of Florida will want to keep a close eye on this system over the next 48 hours.  Beyond that time, residents along the remainder of the Gulf Coast should keep an eye on the progression of this system.
