Hurricane Helen latest: Atlantic storm to spark sunshine across Britain

Longford Weather Update Severe weather predicted as powerful Atlantic storm heads for Ireland The storm will hit the south west and west of the country early on Monday morning and then make its way across the country

Speaking of Florence, by the 5PM update Thursday, Hurricane Florence remains a Category 2 with winds sustained at 105 miles per hour. Florence has 130 miles per hour winds, enough to make it a unsafe Category 4 hurricane.

The National Hurricane Center said Wednesday that Subtropical Storm Joyce has formed in the north Atlantic, but is not now a threat to land.

Most of the midweek brought clouds and rain to southern New England.

All eyes are on Hurricane Florence and its path toward the Carolinas, but other hurricanes and tropical storms are brewing as well.

"That little disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico continues to move closer to Texas, with only a 30 percent chance of development within the next two days, as well as the next five days", Bridges said.

The storm is expected to produce 3 to 5 inches of rain across Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe, with near 10 inches possible in isolated areas, forecasters said. But by Monday Helene is expected to be downgraded to a storm.

A National Weather Service forecaster in Wilmington, North Carolina, said: 'This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast.

However, according to the latest projections, the storm might shift slightly to the south and affect Georgia with heavy rain and possible flooding.

Suga also said Putin had not mentioned the proposal during a summit meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday. In September, 1951, the Soviet Union refused to sign the Peace Treaty of San Francisco with Japan.

Hurricane Florence isn't the only storm threatening lives and property around the world.

People have been ordered to evacuate the Carolinas ahead of strong winds and heavy rain as the hurricane lands.

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

Water could reach as high as 4 feet from Edisto Beach to the South Santee River.

At 11 a.m., the center of the system was about 190 miles east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica.

Unfortunately, North Carolina is just days away from seeing another Hugo-like landfall with the troubling threat of days of Hurricane Harvey-like flooding long after the system make landfall in the Carolinas.

It is predicted the Carolinas could begin feeling tropical storm force winds early Thursday.

Right now, it is looking more likely that Florence will stall VERY close to shore Thursday evening, delaying a technical landfall of the eye/center to sometime Friday or even early Saturday.
