'Danger To Life' Warning Issued For UK As Storm Helene Approaches

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.

In a 2 p.m. advisory, forecasters said sustained winds remained at 60 miles per hour, down from 75 miles per hour Monday.

The weather front is one of a glut of tropical storms in the Atlantic, with Florence sparking mass evacuations as she heads towards landfall in the U.S. states of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

Hurricane Florence isn't the only storm packing powerful winds and torrential rain over the world's oceans.

Isaac was moving west Wednesday afternoon at a speed of nearly 17 miles per hour.

NHC forecasters say that a slow southwestward motion is expected for the next couple of days.

A "yellow" danger to life weather warning has been issued with Storm Helene set to hit the United Kingdom and Ireland next week.

Latest weather prediction models from the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) show the tail end of Helene could start affecting south-west England as early as Monday afternoon.

The current forecast is that "Storm Helene" or "ex-Tropical Storm Helene" will be to the south of Ireland on Monday night (September 17).

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

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

It's a detail that almost got lost among all the wind, rain and storm surge data sent out by the National Hurricane Center on Wednesday. The storm has 45 miles per hour sustained winds with higher-speed gusts.

Tornadoes: Tornadoes will be possible along and to the right of the track of Florence, including the Midlands, Pee Dee and Catawba Regions, this is especially in SC. Tropical storm watches are in effect for Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, and Saba and St. Eustatius.

Most of North Carolina is expected to receive 10 inches of rain, with two feet expected along the coast.

Some fluctuation in wind speeds are expected, and weakening forecast Thursday, but it's still expected to be a fierce storm triggering unsafe flooding. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC. Another system began forming near Hurricane Florence and was forecast at a 20 percent chance of formation over five days.
