The United States National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami released its first advisory on this disturbance on Thursday
The high surface temperature of the ocean west of the Azores is the cause of the formation of this depression at unprecedented latitudes
Among the factors that have caused the formation of this cyclone in such atypical latitudes, the surface temperature of the ocean stands out, which to the west of the Azores is between 26 and 28 ºC, between 2 and 4 ºC above normal for the time, according to points out the AEMET.

Evolution of ‘Danielle’
Both the National Hurricane Center and the models of the European Center for Long-Range Prediction predict a displacement of this future tropical depression to the east or northwest, with the probability of strong winds and rainfall in the Azores, especially from Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
There is a 70% chance that it will become a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours and an 80% chance that it will become a tropical cyclone in the next five days.
In addition, the AEMET spokesman has pointed out that it could also cause bad sea conditions in the areas of the Atlantic closest to the west coast of the Spanish peninsula during the second half of next week, although the probability of gusts of very strong winds in the country are less than 10%.
