Hurricane Danny & What May be Next (8/22/15 - 5:45pm)

With this evening's forecast, we're starting to get a better feel for what to expect from Danny.  While Danny is still a hurricane, it's just barely with 75mph sustained winds.  The Hurricane Center is pretty confident that Danny will continue to weaken over the next 3-4 days.  The models are also showing a turn toward the North around day 5, which would keep it out of the Gulf (unless it turned back across Florida).  By that time there may not be anything left of Danny.

In other news, there are 2 more systems coming off of Africa that we are watching.  The one that is in the Atlantic already has a 60% chance of tropical cyclone formation in the next 5 days.  Will this be Erika?  We'll wait and see.
