Syn: Impending; threatening; near; at hand.

Usage: {Imminent}, {Impending}, {Threatening}. Imminent is
the strongest: it denotes that something is ready to
fall or happen on the instant; as, in imminent danger
of one's life. Impending denotes that something hangs
suspended over us, and may so remain indefinitely; as,
the impending evils of war. Threatening supposes some
danger in prospect, but more remote; as, threatening
indications for the future.
