Tropical Storm Danny forms near the Bahamas
Danny a Threat from North Carolina to Nova Scotia (AccuWeather)
The forecast path released by the AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center continues to show Danny passing just east of the Outer Banks of North Carolina Friday night before strengthening into a hurricane and making landfall over southeastern New England late Saturday or Saturday night.
There is still a chance that Danny tracks farther west, moving over the Outer Banks. There is also a chance the storm heads farther to the east like Bill, missing New England and never making landfall along the East Coast.
The water along the coast is very warm and by the end of the week the shearing winds will be very light. This combination is just right to allow strengthening of a storm to a hurricane.
