MIAMI - Forecasters say people in the Bahamas and the southeastern U.S. should keep an eye on Tropical Storm Danny, which could slowly get stronger as it moves toward land.
The storm has top winds near 45 mph and is moving west-northwest near 12 mph. On Wednesday evening, the storm's center was about 390 miles east of Nassau, Bahamas, and about 735 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C.
The current forecast has the storm on a path to clip the U.S. East Coast over the weekend, but a storm's track can be difficult to predict days in advance.
Meanwhile, far out in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Ignacio is weakening and expected to become a tropical depression as it moves northwest with top winds of 45 mph.
