Tropical Storm Danny forms, but it's no threat to Florida

Tropical Storm Danny has formed in the Caribbean from an area of disturbed weather.

But don't worry: It's not expected to threaten Florida.

It is moving toward the west-northwest at about 18 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. It is expected to turn toward the north-northwest Friday.

Winds are maxing out at about 45 mph, with higher gusts. Slow strengthening is possible during the next couple of days.

It's expected to drop 4 inches of rain over the central and northwestern Bahamas.

Computer models still have the system curling north well east of the Florida peninsula and skirting the Atlantic Coast, however.
