By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) are closely monitoring Hurricane Danielle and Tropical Storm Earl in the Atlantic.
Danielle has weakened a bit as it heads northeastward over the north Atlantic.
Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow weakening is forecast for the next several days.
Forecasters are advising interests in the northern Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda to monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Earl.
A slow motion to the north-northwest or north is forecast to continue for the next 24 to 48 hours followed by a gradual turn to the north-northeast thereafter.
NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft data earlier indicated that the maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts.
Earl could still become a hurricane later this week, NHC says.
Earl is expected to produce additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 4 inches, with isolated storm totals of 8 inches, across the Leeward Islands, U.S. and British Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico through Monday.
