Danny Taking Shape

What, yesterday, was a tropical wave north of Puerto Rico is now Tropical Storm Danny.

The early afternoon visible satellite image of the storm shows a developing circulation pattern in the lower cloud deck with most of the significant thunderstorm activity in the east half of the storm.

Danny is expected to follow a general track similar to Bill, but farther west. The official forecast keeps the storm off shore but some computer models have Danny making landfall in the Carolinas so the “cone” of track possibilities does include the DELMARVA Peninsula. Forecasters do think that Danny will reach marginal hurricane strength for a period of time either Friday or Saturday as the storm skirts the Carolina and Mid Atlantic coastline. Because of this, Danny could become more than a minor inconvenience. It goes without saying that anyone with interests east of the Bay should keep an eye on this storm by the weekend.
