According to the National Hurricane Center, Danny’s projected path is forecast to continue to the west through Sunday night.A turn toward the west-northwest is forecast on Monday. Tropical Storm Danny is forecast to weaken further into a tropical depression by Monday because the tropical cyclone is now interacting with a dry air mass.
Recent data from a U.S. Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicates that Danny has weakened into a tropical storm. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center.
A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, generally within 48 hours.
Interests elsewhere in the U. S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic should monitor the progress of Danny. Additional watches or warnings may be required for portions of these areas tonight or Sunday.
The spaghetti plots for Hurricane Danny have shifted more to the northwest each day during the last four days. If Tropical Storm Danny’s projected path continues more towards the north, and the tropical cyclone actually misses the interaction with land masses in the eastern Caribbean, that could suddenly change both future storm track predictions and intensity models.
