Storm Helene to bring wet and windy weather to Ireland

Storm Helene to bring wet and windy weather to Ireland

The NHC at 11 a.m. on September 12 has issued warnings for Tropical Storm Isaac, which is still moving west about 420 miles east of the island of Martinique.

Helene, which has been downgraded from a hurricane, is among a glut of tropical storms brewing in the region, with mass evacuations under way in southern U.S. states as Hurricane Florence barrels across Virginia and the Carolinas.

Not the most ideal of weather-situations and apparently it's only about to get worse because the tail-end of a hurricane is about to hit Ireland and it's not going to be pretty. Nonetheless Helene is bringing with her very strong wind with gusts up to 120km/h, heavy rain and waves of between 6 and 8m high on some islands.

"Life-threatening flash flooding is possible with Isaac".

The storm is located about 1,350 miles south-southwest of the Azores, and it is moving north-northwest at 14 mph.

Isaac is forecast to move across the central Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea Thursday, and then move across the eastern and central Caribbean Sea through Saturday.

"Gradual weakening is forecast over the next couple of days, and Helene is expected to become a tropical storm on Thursday".

Isaac is moving toward the west near 16 miles per hour, and this general motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected for the next few days.

And finally, the NHC says that swells generated by Isaac will begin to affect portions of the Lesser Antilles on Wednesday afternoon.

"There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect", said the NHC in its 11 a.m. September 12 update. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.

Isaac became the fifth hurricane of the season late Sunday and was initially expected to strengthen, potentially becoming a Cat 2 storm with 100 miles per hour winds, as it crossed warm ocean waters.
