I’ve been watching an area of disturbed weather currently designated 97L for the past few days way out in the Atlantic. While it’s a bit early for action down that way from my experience, this hurricane season as a whole at this point has been early . I’ll keep an eye on this area currently designated 97L in the coming days for further possible development.
As of 8:00 AM EDT June 30 2012:
