New tropical system developing

Another week, another tropical system to watch. This system in the Atlantic near Puerto Rico has not reached official status as a tropical depression (precursor to a tropical storm), but has been assigned an 'invest' number by the NHC as a system to closely monitor for development. Models have this system as a hurricane in the next few days, and on a similar track as Bill. The system's name will be Danny if/when it reaches tropical storm intensity.

A large upper level trough over the eastern US will likely keep this system well offshore and/or maintain high 'shear' conditions that will keep it from strengthening much. However, as with all tropical cyclones in the Atlantic, it bears watching.
