Hurricane Danielle Discussion Number  28
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL052022
300 AM GMT Thu Sep 08 2022

Danielle is beginning to feel the effects of an approaching mid-to 
upper-level trough just to its west. There has been some erosion of 
the deep convection over the southern portion of the circulation, 
likely due to increasing southwesterly shear, while the eye has 
filled with cloud cover. The latest Dvorak intensity estimates have 
overall lowered since the previous advisory, and a blend of these 
values suggest the cyclone's initial intensity has decreased to 65 
kt.

The cyclone is expected to undergo extratropical transition through 
Thursday morning due to the higher shear, interaction with the 
trough, and sharply cooler SSTs along its forecast track. These 
conditions are also expected to cause Danielle to gradually weaken. 
The latest NHC intensity forecast was tweaked slightly lower than 
the previous one, and closely follows the various multi-model 
consensus values. 

Danielle is moving northeastward at 15 kt, and this general motion 
should continue through tonight. A slow down and counterclockwise 
loop is expected to occur on Thursday and Friday when the cyclone 
interacts with the trough that is expected to cut off. After that 
time, a faster motion to the southeast is forecast, which should 
take the extratropical cyclone toward western Europe by the end of 
the period. The NHC track forecast is little changed from the 
previous one, and is near the latest consensus aids.

Danielle continues to produce a large area of very rough seas over
the central-north Atlantic.  More information can be found in the
