In the tropics there’s an unorganized cluster of showers to the east of Bermuda that has a 70% chance of development in the next 2 days. It is called Tropical Wave Invest 94-L. As it tracks to the west and north, we could see impacts for New England as some models have it moving inland north of New York City.
