Watching Low in the Gulf

Along with Tropical Storms Ana and Bill, I'm also watching Invest 91 (Tropical Low) in the Eastern Gulf. The storm is producing a nice circulation visible on radar reflectivity over Southern/Central Florida. I don't expect a lot with this system, but thunderstorms and "tropical-like" air mass can consume Alabama and the Pine Belt through Monday.

My list of tropical disturbances is as follows: Invest 91 (in the Gulf), Tropical Storm Ana, Tropical Storm Bill, and a new tropical wave on the coastline of Africa.

After Ana and Bill, the next name in line is Claudette. Will the next tropical wave be the 3rd named storm of the season? We have much to figure out in the next few days. Tropical Storm Ana will be near Florida Wednesday/Thursday.
