MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Tropical Storm Danny continues to be present as a modest tropical storm over the tropical Atlantic Ocean, 1,000 miles from the Lesser Antilles island chain.  A detailed breakdown of the forecast for the system can be found in the latest article in the Hurricane Center.

A broad upper-low feature near Bermuda is being monitored for possible organization into the tropical or subtropical system over the next several days.  Any development should be gradual to slow, as a considerable amount of cool air is contained in the current circulation.  Regardless of future intensification, most model guidance keep the low in the western Atlantic, with a long-term sign of movement to the northeast, remaining in open waters.

To the east of Tropical Storm Danny, a mass of moisture south of the Cape Verde Islands has limited potential to develop further at this phase.

There are no other major points of disturbed weather to track at this time.
