Well look what popped up in February….
Designated Invest 90L at this time and situated between the Yucatan Peninsula and Cuba, Invest 90 is not expected to become a tropical storm, there exists a possibility for sub-tropical development. The National Hurricane Center is monitoring this area.
Latest placement has this system at 22.0N 86.0W with winds of 25 MPH and a central pressure of 1014 MB.
Looking at this time to be more of a rainmaker for southwest Florida than anything else. There may be some rough seas around the area also. Here’s a look at the Radar out of Key West Florida…

While this may be an early start to the tropical season and somewhat unusual, there has been development this early in this area before; 1952 Groundhog Day tropical storm
