Tropical Storm Danielle is strengthening in the open Atlantic, but the system is still far from land. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami say Danielle has maximum sustained winds of 50 mph and the storm could become a hurricane by late Tuesday.

The exceptionally warm water in the Gulf of Mexico is favorable for development into a tropical storm, but overall environmental conditions are not favorable for intense, quick development. The depression will encounter moderate amounts of wind shear upper-level wind that is not favorable for tropical storm formation but the depression has completed the conversion from a nontropical system into a purely tropical one.

Danielle, the fourth named storm of the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season, was located 725 miles west of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands and was moving northwest at 23 miles per hour (19 km per hour). It carried top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 km per hour) and was forecast to strengthen slowly over the next few days. It would become a hurricane if its top winds reach 74 mph (119 km per hour).
