Amazing what a few hours does....here is the special tropical weather outlook from 8am...   I guess in 4 hours, "some potential" and 30% became 98% considering its supposed to be a TS within 12 hours.

Is this what we can look forward to from the NHC this year?

Last night they made a statement that it was not expected to develop and had stopped issuing advisories.
