Tropical Storm Isaac Intermediate Advisory Number 19A

Tropical Storm Isaac Intermediate Advisory Number 19A

Forecasters have warned that Storm Helene could pose a danger to life when it bears down on the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland next week.

The National Hurricane Center downgraded Isaac to a tropical storm overnight but said Tuesday that it could be "at or near hurricane levels" on Thursday, when it approaches the Lesser Antilles Islands.

If the two systems become tropical storms, it would be the first time the Atlantic has had five named storms at once, Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach said.

The Hurricane Centre says Isaac is almost completely devoid of deep convection at the moment and is not trackable in radar data from Guadeloupe and Martinique.

On the current projected track the centre of this system is forecast to pass between 100 and 150 miles (160 to 240 km) north of Barbados early on Thursday morning.

Although Olivia is expected to move over the islands as a tropical storm, it could still bring worse impacts than recent Hurricane Lane to some areas, the center said.

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.

Tropical storm watches were in effect Tuesday for Antigua, Montserrat and St. Kitts and Nevis.

The waves are produced by being trapped along with incredibly strong winds moving in the same direction as the storm's motion.

The government of the Netherlands has discontinued the Tropical Storm Watch for Saba and St. Eustatius.

Interests elsewhere in the Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of Isaac.

It's not clear if the storm is expected to strengthen back into a hurricane after it hits the eastern Caribbean.

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

On the right side of this view is Helene, a Category 2 hurricane that will likely peter out in the Atlantic without making landfall, according to the latest update from the National Hurricane Center (NHC), a division of NOAA.

The National Hurricane Center said that the storm is Category 4 in strength.

It's unclear whether Isaac could reach the US mainland.

The NHC is estimating that as many as 20 inches of rain could fall in some places along the southern North Carolina coast while bringing in excess of 10 inches of rain in parts of SC. Fountain says most storms are an inconvenience, "but Hurricane Florence will be a life-changing event for many people here in the Carolinas". The storm is packing top winds of 70 miles per hour while tracking to the west at 17 miles per hour.

Sustained winds on Tuesday afternoon approached 105 miles per hour, making it a very strong Category 2 storm, though it was expected to gradually weaken over cooler waters.

"Cloudiness and showers associated with a trough of low pressure over the south-central Gulf of Mexico have decreased since yesterday and the Air Force reconnaissance plane scheduled to investigate the system for today will likely be canceled", said the NHC on September 12.
