Tracking the Tropics: Tropical Storm Danielle is intensifying


Tropical Storm Danielle is nearing hurricane strength and is expected to become the first hurricane of the season sometime Friday. In fact, Danielle is expected to continue to intensify to a Category 2 hurricane by Sunday.

The good news is that forecast models are in solid agreement this system will stay out at sea and not have an impact on the U.S. mainland.

Elsewhere in the tropics, we continue to monitor an area of interest just east of the Lesser Antilles. The odds of development have been modestly dropped to 70% over the next five days.

The latest forecast models are persistent in showing this system moving northwest before taking hooking northeast back out to sea. Though this is likely to remain a fish storm, stay updated as the forecast models will have a better consensus on where this system will go once a storm actually develops.

The previous tropical wave in the far eastern Atlantic (off the coast of Africa) has lost any real chance of development.

Are you prepared for hurricane season? Now’s the time of year to get ready should a storm threaten us in the future. Get caught up on your tropical weather knowledge here.
