<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">500 AM AST SAT AUG 22 2015

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Danny's cloud pattern consists of a central dense overcast with the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">low-level center estimated to be on the southwestern side of that

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">feature due to southwesterly shear.  Some fragmented curved bands

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">exist on the north side of the circulation as well. The initial wind

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">speed is lowered to 85 kt, but this could be generous as it

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">is slightly above the Dvorak CI-numbers.  NOAA and Air Force Reserve

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Unit reconnaissance aircraft are scheduled to investigate Danny this

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">afternoon and should provide a better estimate of its intensity.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">The hurricane is moving west-northwestward at about 9 kt.  A turn

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">to the west with an increase in forward speed is expected to begin

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">later today when the subtropical ridge to the north of the cyclone

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">builds westward and strengthens.  This general motion is expected

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">to persist for the next several days taking Danny across the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Leeward Islands in 2 to 3 days, and near Puerto Rico and Hispaniola

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">in 3 to 4 days.  The track model guidance remains in good

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">agreement, and the only change made to the previous forecast was a

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">slight northward adjustment at the latter forecast points.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Strong southwesterly winds aloft and a stable air mass are expected

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">to cause Danny to continue losing strength during the next several

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">days. In addition, the potential land interaction with the Greater

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Antilles could contribute to the weakening. Although the guidance

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">agrees on the overall trend, there remains a significant discrepancy

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">between the dynamical and statistical model solutions on the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">weakening rate. The GFS, ECMWF, and HWRF models show Danny weakening

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">quickly and opening up into a trough over the eastern Caribbean.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Conversely, the SHIPS and LGEM models show a slower decay.  The NHC

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">intensity forecast is between these scenarios and is in best

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">agreement with the intensity model consensus.

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New""> 

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Based on the current forecast, tropical storm watches will likely be

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">required later today for portions of the Leeward Islands and the

<span-size:10.0pt;font-family:"Courier New"">Virgin Islands.
