ST. PETERSBURG -- There is no big change to Tropical Storm Danny Wednesday morning.
The storm is in the eastern Atlantic Ocean about 1445 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.
Maximum sustained winds are still 50 mph and it’s moving west at 14 mph.
Danny, which poses no threat to land at this time, is the fourth tropical storm of the 2015 season.
Never miss a local story.
While it’s in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, it’s forecast to strengthen and become our first hurricane of the season. Dry air is the only factor unfavorable for strengthening during the next few days.
The subtropical ridge in the Atlantic will continue to steer Danny to the west-northwest during the next five days.
So it will approach the islands of the eastern Caribbean on Monday next week.
At that time, it’s forecast to begin to weaken.
