How do you forecast a tropical storm?

Forecasters use a variety of observational information from satellites and aircraft to determine the current location and intensity of the storm. This information is used along with computer forecast models to predict the future path and intensity of the storm.

Invest 98L is forecast to move through the Caribbean Sea this weekend, where it is expected to strengthen. It could become a tropical depression or tropical storm within the next couple of days. It is too soon to say with any certainty how strong the system could become.

Tropical cyclone forecasters use a variety of tools to forecast the storm's track, intensity, storm surge, and rainfall. Models start by using observations of the atmosphere, and then use these data to make a forecast.
