MIAMI — Tropical Storm Danny has strengthened a little in the Atlantic as it moves toward land while Ignacio has been downgraded to a tropical depression far out in the Pacific.

Forecasters say people in the Carolinas and northward to New England should monitor Danny’s progress.

Danny has maximum sustained winds of 60 mph (95 kph) early Thursday with slow strengthening expected over the next few days. Danny is centered about 575 miles (925 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and moving northwest near 10 mph (17 kph).

In the Pacific, Ignacio has weakened to a tropical depression with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph (55 kph). It’s centered about 1,060 miles (1,710 kilometers) west of the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula.
