The National Hurricane Center is working to give as much early warning for tropical cyclones and impacts this season.

For the first time ever, the NHC will issue advisories and graphical products on tropical disturbances BEFORE they actually strengthen into a tropical system. This happened for the first time on Sunday, as they issued a suite of products regarding invest 92L in the Atlantic.

With enough confidence in the forecast, the NHC issued text advisories to describe the likelihood of cyclone development, and a potential path that the storm will take, among other useful forecast information.

The potential tropical cyclone is expected to eventually strengthen to a tropical storm as it travels westward toward the windward islands and eastern Caribbean. Here’s a look at the forecast “cone”.
