Danny Forms

The National Hurricane Center announced at 11 am today that the system we spoke about yesterday is now a tropical storm.  Danny is now the fourth named system this year.  (Insert reference to the song Danny Boy, or to Ted Knight in Caddyshack here ["How about a Fresca?  Hmm?]).

The official track from the NHC keeps the center of Danny offshore quite a bit.  It will graze coastal New England later this week.  High surf and gusty winds will pound the northeast as Danny flirts with category one hurricane status.

Check out the WTOL Hurricane Tracker for the latest information and track.  A special section is dedicated to Danny, and this also appears above the 7-day forecast on the main weather page.
