Where's Danny going?

As of 11 p.m. Wednesday, Tropical Storm Danny appeared stronger, yet still pretty disorganized. Maximum sustained winds were clocking in at 50 mph.

Eastern Seaboard residents from the Carolinas up to New England should keep a close eye on this storm as the current projected path has it shooting straight up the coast.

The storm was centered 675 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and slowing down to 10 mph in its northwest movement. (Earlier in the day, it was tracking along at 18 mph.) Tropical storm-force winds extended 175 miles from the center.

Its northwest track is expected to continue Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Then a turn toward the north with an increase in forward speed is forecast for Friday.

Meanwhile, a new wave has come off the African coast. According to the service, any significant development is several days away.
