Storm Helene set for earlier arrival to Wales, Met Office says



Tropical Storm Helene is still making her way towards Europe, with the latest indicators predicting it to shift nortwards, directly towards Ireland and the UK.

The national forecaster issued the briefing about the expected path of the tropical storm making its way towards Ireland. Tuesday night will be wet again with another spell of rain approaching, with lowest temperatures of 9 or 10 degrees.

The warning said residents in the affected areas can expect travel disruption on most transports, power cuts and large waves on coastal routes and sea fronts.

On Friday morning, the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for western parts of the United Kingdom from 18.00 on Monday 17 September until midday on Tuesday, but the warning could be upgraded to red over the weekend.

A yellow warning remains in place but the storm is not thought to pose a risk to life.

A similar section of Wales and the Cornish peninsular are also expected to bear the brunt of any storm-like weather, although much of the rest of England could be noticeably windier by the time Helene hits land on Tuesday morning.

Actually, with four tropical storms that include Tropical Storm Florence, located inland in extreme eastern South Carolina, Tropical Storm Helene, located over the northeastern Atlantic Ocean, on Tropical Storm Isaac, located in the eastern Caribbean Sea, and Tropical Storm Joyce, located about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Azores, the National Hurricane Center has been very busy.

It will stay very unsettled through Wednesday and Thursday also with frequent spells of rain, and a potential for further sizable amounts. But it will not be used for Tropical Storm Helene. "The Storm is expected to turn northeastwards with an increase in forward speed as it heads towards Ireland and the United Kingdom".
