Storm Helene to bring wet and windy weather to Ireland

Met Eireann update on tropical Storm Helene heading towards Ireland

Landfall is expected early Friday. The government of France has discontinued the Tropical Storm Watch for St. Martin, and the government of St. Maarten has discontinued the Tropical Storm Watch for St. Maarten.

There are now four storms swirling in the Atlantic Ocean with the formation of Tropical Storm Joyce. Gusts may range from 30 to 40 miles per hour with a few gusts up to 50 miles per hour.

Isaac is expected to produce up to 3 inches of rain, with isolated maximum totals of up to 5 inches, across southeast Puerto Rico.

As three powerful storms march one by one across the Atlantic Ocean toward the U.S. East Coast and the Caribbean, a fourth is getting ready to roll over the Hawaiian Islands. But forecasters also said the opposite could happen when it brushed up against strong wind shear. McNoldy says "the rainfall has been and continues to be a very substantial threat over the entire area".

Florence is the most unsafe of three tropical systems in the Atlantic.

Hurricane Florence weakened to Category 2 storm overnight, but with sustained winds of 110 miles per hour, it was within 1 miles per hour of Category 3 and the wind field is expanding.

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

Others turned to social media and held live prayer sessions asking God to cause Hurricane Florence to lose strength. It is moving to the northwest at 12 mph, which is 3 mph slower than what the hurricane center reported at 5 a.m.

Given its expected slow speed once it rolls ashore, they warned the heavy rain and storm could spread across a wide area.

At noon, The National Hurricane Center issued hurricane watches for Dominica, Guadeloupe, and Martinique while a tropical storm watch was issued for Antigua and Montserrat.

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.

The National Hurricane Center said that the storm is Category 4 in strength. Strong winds may continue into late Sunday. The storm is now moving northwest at 15 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Issac was one of four weather systems rolling across the Atlantic Thursday, including the risky category 2 Hurricane Florence, which was packing winds of nearly 100mph as it headed towards the Carolinas on the east coast of the United States.

However, it accepted there "remains large uncertainty in Helene's exact track".
