Tropical Storm Helene expected to bring rain, wind gusts to Azores

Tropical Storm Helene expected to bring rain, wind gusts to Azores

It was traveling west at 14 miles per hour. It was located about 345 miles east of Guadaloupe.

While a tropical storm watch is in effect for St. Kitts and Nevis, at Pond Hill, Nevis, forecaster Harry W. Hallstrom said, "Isaac is getting ripped apart with wind shear".

Puerto Rico, which is still recovering from a lethal blow by Maria last year, could see some rain and gusty wind, but nothing close to last year. "It's just not anywhere near a level of Maria", forecaster Eric Blake said.

The tropics are still looking busy Friday as Hurricane Florence pounds the Carolinas and other systems continue swirling in the Atlantic Ocean.

Mapp, who spoke with the National Weather Service and Virgin Islands Emergency Management Agency officials again this morning, said two to four inches of rain are expected on St. Croix beginning Thursday evening.

"It's just extremely busy and it's even busier than a year ago and all at once", Blake said.

Meteorologists are still trying to work out exactly which way the weather system could track, she said, adding: "But at the moment it does look as though it's tracking towards the western side of the United Kingdom and will cross the southern half of the United Kingdom".

"They're all interplaying with one another and it's not a particularly confident scenario", he said.

Strongest winds are expected to spread from southern Ireland and the west of Cornwall and Wales, moving into north-western England, western Scotland and then northern Scotland.

Hurricane Florence brings flooding and blackouts
It was expected to begin pushing its way westward across SC later in the day, in a watery siege that could go on all weekend. There have already been 360 rescues in New Bern, North Carolina since Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday morning.

He said the federal government and first responders are ready to assist, but that 'bad things can happen when you're talking about a storm this size'. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next few days. All lanes of Interstate 26 are westbound to allow more people to leave the coast and head inland toward the state capital of Columbia.

The mammoth waves were spotted early Wednesday in the storm's northeast quadrant, said the NHC's Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch, which has been documenting Florence's waves all week.

"Mild, very humid conditions are expected to develop during Monday, with rain moving up from the south in freshening southerly winds".

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

A small-craft warning means in this case that surface winds greater than or equal to 25 knots and seas equal to or greater than 3 metres (10ft) are already affecting or expected to affect the marine area.

In the latest information from the National Hurricane Center, Hurricane Florence has been downgraded to a Category 2 event. Storm winds could intensify through the day and tonight, but weaken slightly Thursday as it nears the coast.

He says the time to flee Hurricane Florence is now. "Prepare for long power outages".

A system in the central Gulf of Mexico was a little less certain.

The agency is also monitoring a tropical disturbance that has a 60 percent chance of forming a tropical storm.
