The tropical wave, invest 90L, has shown a little strengthening in the Caribbean Sea over the past 12 hours.  Although there is still little chance of development in the next 48 hours, there is still the possibility of tropical cyclone formation after 48 hours.  It is still too soon to tell right now.  It is still moving west-northwestward at around 10-15 mph, according to the NHC.  This area is very much worth watching over the next several days.
