The remnants of former Tropical Storm Harvey will continue to track westwardthrough the Caribbean Sea and possibly into the Bay of Campeche where a regeneration of the system could occur this week.

Hostile winds aloft shredded Harvey apart on Saturday, and the National Hurricane Center issued its final advisory.

What is left of Harveyis a cluster ofshower and thunderstorm activity to the south of Jamaica, which became more concentrated Sunday afternoon.

However, ahurricane hunter aircraft investigated the remnants of Harvey Sunday afternoon and found that the system hadn'tregenerated into a tropical depression or tropical storm because it lackeda well-defined center of circulation, and there was also no indication of tropical-storm-force winds.

Through Monday, Harvey is forecast to enter the western Caribbean where conditions could be somewhat conducive for the gradual reorganization of the system as it moves west-northwestward.

Heavy rain from this system could cause flooding in Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula by Monday or Tuesday regardless of whether Harvey can reform prior to reaching those land areas.

By the middle portion of this week, Harvey's remnants may move into the Bay of Campeche (southwest Gulf of Mexico) where they will have to be monitored closely. Some forecast guidance suggests Harvey could reform over this region even if it doesn't get its act together prior to reaching Central America and the Yucatan.

Residents and visitors in eastern Mexico and south Texas should continue to follow the progress of Harvey's remnants, as uncertainty remains with forecast details.

Invest 92L continues tofesterto the north of the Lesser Antilles.

Wind shear has chipped away at 92L's structure and overall development chances. Hostile wind sheartypically rips apart tropical disturbances and weaker tropical cyclones.

We will continue to monitor the progress of Invest 92L as it moves west-northwestward during the next several days in the general direction of the Bahamas, but overall, development chances are low.

This system will enhance rainfall chances in the Bahamas, as well as much ofFlorida, early this week.

It may eventually interact with a cold front near Florida by later this week, and that's when we'll keep a close eye on it for any potential increase in organization.

Finally,a tropical wave in the central Atlantic Ocean is not expected todevelop, but we will watch it over the next several days. Its future trackis expected to be northwestward into the open Atlantic Ocean.

We are in the climatological peak of the hurricane season, so each tropical wave or area of low pressure in the Atlantic Basin must be watched closely for development.
