Hurricane Danielle Stronger Tuesday Morning
Hurricane Danielle is now a Category 2 storm as of early Tuesday morning. Further strengthening is possible over the next day up to a Major Hurricane at Category 3 strength, but Danielle will likely not impact any landmasses as it tracks through the open waters of the central Atlantic.
Danielle is currently tracking around the southern periphery of a ridge over the Atlantic, but will be able to make a turn more northwest around that ridge over the next day. A trough will also deepen over the central Atlantic aiding in the turn to the north-northwest by the end of this week, steering Danielle away from any landmasses. As a result, Hurricane Danielle may also be able to bypass Bermuda.
