Center of Danny Expected to Pass Through the Southern Leeward Islands on Monday

At 8 p.m. the center of Tropical Storm Danny was located near 15.5 degrees North, 59.3 degrees West or just under 400 miles to the east-southeast of the Virgin Islands. Danny is moving to the west at 15 miles per hour and a westward to west-northwestward motion is expected through Tuesday night. Tropical storm force winds extend outward to 60 miles from the center.

On the forecast track, the center will move near or over portions of the Leeward Islands late tonight or early Monday, and into the northeastern Caribbean Sea during the day tomorrow. Danny will make its closest point of approach to the Virgin Islands on Monday night at about 10 p.m. when the storm center passes some 79 miles to the south-southwest of St. Croix. At that time Danny is expected to be a tropical depression with top winds of 30 miles per hour.

The National Hurricane Center projects that Danny can produce two to four inches of rain over the Leeward Islands, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico through Tuesday.

The next advisory on Tropical Storm Danny, including updated strike projections, will be issued at or around 11 p.m.
