Tropical Storm Danielle - September 24-27, 1992

A trough of low pressure lingered near the southeast U.S. coast from the 18th onward.
A cold front dropped into this trough on the 20th.  By the 22nd, a closed low had formed
at the surface 175 n mi south-southeast of Cape Hatteras; this is when the system was
designated a tropical depression.  Several hours later an aircraft investigated the system
and found a tropical storm.  Initially moving slowly northeastward, it was blocked by a
 ridge of high pressure.  It executed an anticyclonic loop, moving towards the Virginia Capes.
  As another low approached the Great Lakes, the system moved quickly to the north-
northwest, moving onto the Eastern Shore of Maryland on the 25th before weakening into
a  tropical depression.  Its surface circulation dissipated in Pennsylvania on the 26th.
Its track is below, produced  by the National Hurricane Center.
