Tropical Storm Danny, located this morning about 355 miles south of Cape Hatteras, N.C., is expected to stay offshore as it moves north up the East Coast this weekend.

The center of Danny is expected to pass offshore of North Carolina's Outer Banks early Saturday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of this morning, Danny's maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph and the storm was moving north-northeast near 9 mph.

Mariners and coastal residents from the Carolinas to New England and the Canadian Maritimes are urged to monitor the progress of the storm as it moves north.

Large swells from Danny are expected to produce dangerous surf conditions and "life-threatening rip currents" along the East Coast this weekend, according to the National Hurricane Center.
