Tropical Storm Danny's Projected Path Changes
MIAMI, Florida — As of 11 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, August 23, 2015, NOAA’s National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida has issued a public advisory due to the presence of Tropical Storm Danny.
Tropical Storm Danny is located 100 miles east of Dominica and is moving to the west at 15 miles per hour. Danny now has maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour, with higher gusts. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) to the northeast of the center.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Danny’s projected path is forecast to continue to the west through Tuesday. Tropical Storm Danny is forecast to weaken further into a tropical depression by Monday, and become a remnant low by Monday night or Tuesday, because the tropical cyclone is now interacting with a dry air mass.
TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS AND WATCHES
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Antigua, Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts, and Nevis.
A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Saba and St. Eustatius, and St. Maarten.
The Tropical Storm Watch for Puerto Rico, Vieques, Culebra, and the U.S. Virgin Islands has been discontinued.
Spaghetti models are in general agreement that Hurricane Danny will continue on a west-northwesterly track towards Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic through Tuesday. Most models forecast that Danny will pass over the southern Bahamas by Friday as a remnant low. The low is then forecast to parallel Florida’s east coast on Saturday and Sunday.
