Danielle dwindling...

Very strong vertical shear has ripped Danielle apart, and is now
struggling to maintain Tropical Storm intensity.  The low-level center
is completely exposed, and what convection there is is being whipped off
to the north.  As of 21Z, TS Danielle was located at 29.3N 38.4W and
tracking NNE at 9kts.  Intensity is 45kts and 1005mb.  Further rapid
weakening is imminent, so I suspect we will see the end of this one

Elsewhere, there are a couple of tropical waves between Africa and the
Lesser Antilles, at about 30W and 50W.  Both show minimal signs of
organization, but will still be monitored.
