Hurricane forecasters say Harvey could make a comeback

If necessary, advisories could be resumed and tropical storm watches or warnings issued before Harvey regains tropical cyclone status.

Thankfully, that hasn't happened due to strong wind shear and dry air which has helped to keep the area under control as of yet.

At the moment, the National Hurricane Center gives it a 10% chance of it becoming a tropical system over the next 48 hours and a 40% chance over the next 5 days.

But here's the deal on 92L.

Not only that, there's a different tropical wave that could move close to Florida later this week.

This system will then interact with a frontal boundary sliding down from the north on Wednesday and Thursday to spark off scattered showers and storms each afternoon/evening.

But Roy Gutterman, a free speech professor at Syracuse University, thinks the president gave a "grudging condemnation". One woman was killed and almost 20 people were injured when a man drove a vehicle into a group of peaceful protesters.

So here's what to expect as Invest 92L pays us a visit this week.

We will see increasing moisture for the start to the workweek. Some development of this system is still possible before it reaches the coast of Belize or the Yucatan Peninsula early Tuesday.

The storm is the second of three in the ocean Monday.

Friday the front looks to stall out just off shore in the Gulf of Mexico. Conditions are not expected to be conducive to development over the next couple of days... but could become slightly more conducive as it approaches the northern Bahamas or Florida but the middle of next week.

An area of low pressure located 900 miles east of the Leeward Islands is trying to gain organization as it travels northwestward at 15 mph. Again, a tropical storm is the worst case scenario and is unlikely at this point.
