Tracking the Tropics: Danny Now a Remnant Low

28 Jun 2021, 8:45 pm

Tropical Storm Danny made landfall at approximately 8PM EDT just north of Hilton Head, on Pritchards Island, South Carolina.  Maximum winds were 40 mph.

Danny is now just a remnant low spinning over the southeast this morning. This storm will still bring some gusty winds and heavy rain to the region.

There is a wave of low pressure off the coast of Africa that may become more organized over the next week as it moves westward across the Atlantic Ocean. If it were to develop the process would be slow and gradual due to overall less than ideal environmental conditions. This wave, Invest 95L, is fighting off dry, dusty Saharan air and cooler sea surface temperatures across parts of the eastern Atlantic Ocean.

Regardless of tropical development, computer models are bringing this low westward across the central Atlantic Ocean through the end of next week. The Eastern Caribbean could begin to see impacts by late week.
