RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Hurricane Danielle is expected to lose its intensity and be downgraded to a tropical rainstorm soon.
The fourth named storm of the season is moving east-northeastward through the northern Atlantic to the northwest of the Azores. It will come in contact with cooler water and increased wind that will lead to a decrease in intensity.
The system can still bring some rain to western Europe. Minor flooding is possible, but with much of western Europe being recently dry, the rain will be beneficial to most.
There is also Hurricane Earl that should quickly strengthen as it moves to the north and northeast, just east of Bermuda. The island could experience locally strong wind gusts and downpours late in the week.
