At 11am the center of Hurricane Danielle was
located near latitude 42.2 North, longitude 41.2 West. Danielle is
moving toward the east-northeast near 6 mph (9 km/h). A faster
east-northeastward motion is expected to begin by tonight. A slow
counter clockwise turn is then forecast to occur at the end of the
Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 km/h) with higher
gusts. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next several days.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 150 miles
The estimated minimum central pressure is 986 mb (29.12 inches).
At 11am the center of Tropical Storm Earl was
located near latitude 23.7 North, longitude 65.7 West. Earl is
moving toward the north near 5 mph (7 km/h) and this motion is
expected to continue with a gradual turn to the north-northeast
starting on Wednesday.
NOAA Hurricane Hunter Aircraft indicates that maximum sustained
winds remain near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts. Earl is
forecast to maintain its strength today followed by intensification
resuming by tomorrow.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km)
from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 996 mb (29.42 inches).
Eastern Tropical Atlantic:
Disorganized showers and thunderstorms persist from the Cabo Verde
Islands southwestward several hundred miles in association with a
broad area of low pressure. Environmental conditions are conducive
for some development of this system, and a tropical depression could
form in a few days while moving westward to west-northwestward at 15
to 20 mph over the eastern and central tropical Atlantic.
Upper-level winds are likely to become less conducive for
development late this week.
- Formation chance through 48 hours…medium…40 percent.
- Formation chance through 5 days…medium…60 percent.
A tropical wave currently located over western Africa is forecast to
emerge offshore into the eastern Atlantic in a day or two.
Environmental conditions appear generally conducive for some slow
development thereafter as the system moves west-northwestward
over the eastern tropical Atlantic.
- Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
- Formation chance through 5 days…low…20 percent.
