Original Story:

The Atlantic Basin sees its first named storm in over 60 days, as Tropical Storm Danielle has formed in the North Atlantic.

No impact to our area or any land mass is expected. The projected track of Danielle keeps it over the Atlantic as it continues to slowly move towards the east, away from the United States.

The National Hurricane Center projects Danielle to strengthen into a hurricane over the next few days, as conditions are favorable for development.

After that, Danielle will encounter unfavorable conditions for development, including colder water, and most likely fizzle out.
