Hurricane Helene Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Florence over the Atlantic

Yesterday, Met Eireann issued a briefing on Tropical Storm Helene which suggests that we could be more affected by the storm than previously predicted. It will give us some strongish winds, some wet weather as well but the energy in it will also bring some warmth.

According to Met Eireann, current forecasts indicate that south to southeast winds will reach gale or strong gale force at Sea tomorrow, but will be fresh to strong over land.

The spokesman said: "Helene is still over the Atlantic but it's weakening and we're a lot more confident of what's going to happen".

Bizarrely temperatures could surge to 27C as we approach October.

Coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities may be affected by spray and/or large waves.

Met Éireann have warned that strong winds, high intensity rainfall and a risk of flooding are expected in the coming days as tropical storm Helene prepares to hit Ireland on Monday night. "Meanwhile, in some Irish Sea coastal areas, most likely in Wales and northwest England, gusts to 55-65 miles per hour are likely with possible isolated gusts in excess of 70 miles per hour in the most exposed places".

Weather watchers will have their eyes on the skies in the coming days as Hurricane Helene creeps closer to the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

Ms Lear said: "That south-westerly flow really dragging in some humidity so if you have not the cloud, the wind and the rain it really will feel quite warm with it". Helene is expected to take a turn toward the north-northeast sometime on Saturday, followed by a turn toward the northeast by Sunday morning.

While Hurricane Florence pounds North Carolina, another tropical storm is on track to reach Britain early next week.
