An Eye on Tropical Storm Danny

Tropical Storm Danny is still poorly organized though it is expected to strengthen into a hurricane.

As of 5am EDT on Thursday, Danny is located near 27.4 north, 72.1 west or about 575 miles south-southeast of Hatteras, North Carolina.  Maximum sustained wins are near 60 mph with gusts up to 70 mph.  It is moving northwest at 10 mph. Tropical Storm Danny’s central pressure is 1006 millibars or 29.71 inches.

Satellite images indicate that most of the storms deep convection is on the eastern side of the storm.  The center of Danny has re-formed a little farther to the north.

As Danny moves father away from the weak upper-level low that had been creating shear, thus preventing Danny from becoming better organized, the storm should now gradually strengthen over the next 24-48 hours.
