Tropical Depression 7 (AKA 99L)
An update from StormCarib :
99L: Looks to make TS Gonzalo soon. It is now Tropical Depression 7. Already impressive on visible satellite, currentÂtrack takes 99L through the lower Windward Islands and into the eastern Caribbean graveyard and the current models forecast it to die there as so many before have. However, at the moment, not forecast to become a hurricane even though shear is low and the dust shield is down. Main reason as it's very low around 9 degrees N, 40 degrees W and has to escape the ITCZ which it will.
Big thanks to Gert of Storm Carib .

It looks like going well to the south of DR in about 5 days time as a Tropical Storm

There are a few tracks on the stat models for Gonzalo that are trending North as it passes south of the island. We really need the rain. Any opinion on whether it will trend north ?

Mike we need your opinion on this one. All I read is"It should be noted that small systems
like Tropical Depression Seven are often difficult to predict as
they are more likely to fluctuate in strength compared to
larger cyclones."

Mike Help please!

We all miss Mike. Google is your friend with tons of good forecast sites so YOU can figure out what to do. (Or maybe not.)

it will probably be some tremendous downpours with this thing and nothing worse if the trajectory remains the same. But dios its the last thing the island needs. 2020 is one son of a gun.
