Invest 97L, the disturbance in the southern Caribbean, moved over land Saturday night in Central America.

While it no longer holds the potential for tropical development, heavy rain could cause flooding and mudslides in regions of Nicaragua and Honduras, meteorologist Kassandra Crimi said.

Otherwise, the tropics are quiet, and no tropical development is expected in the Atlantic over the next week, according to Crimi.
