Based on analysis of satellite loop imagery this evening, the MDR is still having its share of problems. Once again, based on the updated information I posted on the MJO forecast, I wouldn’t expect conditions to become unstable in the atmosphere close to the beginning to mid part of next week, when the MJO should enter phase 2 based on most of the phase space diagrams. The JMA updates once again tomorrow, and I’ll look at the new forecast. Elsewhere, I am closely monitoring the tropical wave now located over Belize. This should enter the BOC by Fri., and the NHC has raised the probability of cyclone development to LOW (30%) during the next 5 days.
NHC 5 DAY GTWO (LINKED)
You can make out the rotation in the loop imagery. You’ll note in the water vapor loop, a mid/upper level low to the NW of the wave. This should be aiding in ventilating the area, which could aid in some further slow development.

I am making this short tonight, as I had to make another weather group on Facebook as the other group got hacked, and that ate up quite a bit of time.
Based on the updated ECMWF EPS cyclone probability forecast, the ensemble indicates a 55% prob. of a tropical depression forming during the next 24-72 hours, out to 48-96 hours.
ECMWF EPS CYCLONE FORMATION PROBABILITIES
Neither the ECMWF and GFS global models show any development from this feature, albeit as with 98L, conditions are forecast to be somewhat favorable for slow development as this feature enters the BOC. I am going to reference only the ECMWF in order to save time. Forecast conditions are almost the same as they were for 98L, however the radial shear pattern is not as robust, and the 200 mb radial outflow will be east of the system, however there will be a diffluent flow aloft over the center of the system. As this occurs, we could see an increase in coverage and organization similar to 98L, however I believe a tad bit slower. How much it organizes will depend on exactly how it travels. IF it takes the outline in the NHC outlook map, then it will eventually run out of water for further development, and most likely wouldn’t attain depression status. Should steering take it further east, but following the same outline, it would be over water longer, hence possible further slow development. I’ll have a better idea once this enters the BOC.
The following graphics from the ECMWF show excellent forecast moisture at the surface, and up through the mid levels of the atmosphere, based on PWAT and Relative Humidity values. The shear forecast indicates somewhat of a radial shear pattern at that time.
ECMWF MSLP ANOMALY AND SHEAR FORECAST MAPS
ECMWF PWAT AND RELATIVE HUMIDITY FORECAST
I will continue to monitor this feature closely, and the remainder of the tropics for any significant changes that may occur.
Elsewhere, I do not expect Tropical Storm formation during the next 5 days.
