FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Tropical Storm Danny forms over Atlantic

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The fourth tropical storm of the season has formed over the Tropical Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center upgraded a tropical depression to Tropical Storm Danny. At 4 p.m., the center of Tropical Storm Danny was located near latitude 10.9 North, longitude 37.5 West.

Danny is moving toward the west near 12 mph. A motion toward the west is expected Tuesday night, followed by a turn toward the west-northwest on Wednesday. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph with higher gusts.

Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Danny is expected to become a hurricane by Thursday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).
