Tropical Storm Isaac’s Winds Nearing Leeward Islands

Severe weather warning issued as Hurricane Helene bears down on Ireland

This general motion is expected to continue through the next few days.

Given the lack of deep convection to sustain the cyclone, continual gradual weakening is expected.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe. "Interests elsewhere in the Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of Isaac". Little change in strength is expected over the next several hours.

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

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 is likely to die out by Wednesday, the forecaster said.

The future will bring more hurricanes to Europe Is Ireland ready for hurricanes?

Chris Landsea, chief of the analysis and forecast branch, told the Associated Press that such waves are entirely possible within the storm, but there's also a chance "radar misinterpreted rain as an 83-foot wave".

Isaac is moving west at 21 miles per hour.

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.

Although Florence was downgraded from Category 4 status, it is still considered an extremely unsafe storm with maximum sustained winds near 125 miles per hour. These conditions could allow for regeneration of the system as it approaches Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula, but given the uncertainty in whether Isaac will survive long enough to take advantage of these conditions, the official forecast still calls for dissipation, the NHC said. Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected across portions of northeastern Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana late this week.
