Tropical Storm Danielle forms, but poses no threat to Bermuda

The US-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s five-day tropical outlook as of Thursday afternoon.

The fourth tropical storm of the year is expected to form in the North Atlantic later today, but is not considered a threat to the island.

The US-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said that Tropical Storm Danielle is expected to strengthen further and become the first hurricane of the season in a matter of days.

Danielle is positioned at 38.1 degrees North, 44.7 degrees West, which is hundreds of miles to the northeast of Bermuda.

NOAA said: “Danielle is moving toward the east near 2 mph. The tropical storm is expected to meander during the next few days.

“Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph with higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and Danielle is expected to become a hurricane in two days or so.”

The system was one of three being monitored by NOAA for potential tropical development.

To the island’s south, meteorologists are watching a broad area of low pressure located several hundred miles east of the Leeward Islands.

While the system has shown little change in recent days, NOAA said any additional development of the system over the next few days would lead to the formation of a tropical depression.

The system is forecast to move slowly west-northwest towards the northern Leeward Islands, and has an 80 per cent chance of becoming a named storm by Tuesday morning.

Another low pressure system located northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands is also being monitored for potential development, with NOAA saying there was some chance that it could become a “short-lived tropical depression”.
