Here is the initial projection of newly named Tropical Storm Danny. The Hurricane Center will be following the development and forecast track of this storm as it churns north the next forty-eight hours. I’ll leave the expert predictions to the specialist of NOAA.
Note how the cone of confidence fans out along the time line. I oftened wondered if meteorologists in the Midwest could fashion the same technique for projecting the path and intensity of winter storms. When I was in the National Weather Service we couldn’t quite come up with a uniformed strategy for defining categories of snow storms.
