But it has little chance of affecting land, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of 11 a.m. Friday, Danielle was located about 885 miles west of the Azores with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph moving west at 1 mph.

The system is now a Category 1 hurricane, the fourth named storm of the hurricane season, and the first in nearly two months.

Danielle is expected to meander slowly across the North Atlantic over the next few days before weakening.

Hurricane Center thinks Daniel could step up a bit. On Friday afternoon, however, forecasters revised down their intensity forecasts.

The Hurricane Center monitored two more tropical waves on Friday. It was likely to become the next tropical cyclone.

The most active part of hurricane season is from mid-August to the end of October, with Sept. 10 the statistical peak of the season.
