Track of TS 06L

Tropical Storm Danielle (06L) has been upgraded to a hurricane once again. The system is located about 795 mi (1275 km) east of the Leeward Islands. It is moving toward the west-northwest near 18 mph (30 km/hr), but is expected to slow down and turn toward the northwest during the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 mph (120 km/hr) with higher gusts. Danielle is thus a category one hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Little change in strength is expected tomorrow, with some strengthening possible by Thursday.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 30 miles (45 km) from the center and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km). The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.23 inches).
