Danielle swiftly turned into the season's first hurricane Friday following a long void in robust tropical activity.
Tropical Storm Danielle is centered less than 900 miles west of the Azores in the eastern Atlantic, and is hardly moving at all.
Its highest winds are at 75 mph, based on data from the latest National Hurricane Center advisory.
The pattern near Danielle supports little movement, mainly erratic, and at times, stationary, as it grows into a high-end category 1 hurricane during its life span. By early next week, a more pronounced track to the northeast is shown, where it will begin to weaken in long-range forecast projections.
This storm has no risk of impacting the Big Bend and southern Georgia regions.
