A tropical disturbance moving across the central Atlantic could strengthen into a tropical depression or tropical storm as it heads west toward the Lesser Antilles over the next several days, the Weather Channel is reporting.

The National Hurricane Centre has dubbed the disturbance Invest 99L.

An invest is defined as the short for investigative area – a designated area of disturbed weather that is being monitored for potential tropical cyclone development.

According to the Weather Channel, Invest 99L was centered in the deep tropics near 10 degrees north latitude, roughly 1,000 miles east of the Windward Islands.

The National Hurricane Center gave 99L a 60% chance of becoming at least a tropical depression by Monday morning, with a 70% chance by Thursday.

On its predicted path, 99L would approach the Lesser Antilles by Tuesday, according to reports.

The Weather Channel said it’s too soon to know if 99L will pose any threat farther west or northwest toward the Greater Antilles and/or the United States.

“Any such threat would most likely be one to two weeks away,” it reported.
