"Mild, very humid conditions are expected to develop during Monday, with rain moving up from the south in freshening southerly winds".

A turn toward the northeast with a rapid increase in forward motion is forecast to occur over the weekend.

Isaac is forecast to gradually weaken over the next few days and could degenerate into a tropical wave at any time.

September 14 (UPI) Tropical Storm Helene was expected to bring heavy rain and wind to the Azores this weekend, the National Hurricane Center said Friday.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for.

Tropical storm force winds are in the 39-73 miles per hour range, says NOAA. Satellite images show very little left as a recognizable tropical storm. "Interests elsewhere in the Leeward Islands should monitor the progress of Isaac".

Top winds for the weather system were about 40 miles per hour Thursday night.

The "probable" forecast path for Florence, a Category 4 hurricane, showed the storm shifting further toward the southern North Carolina coast and the northern half of the SC coast, with the forecast cone stretching into Georgia, western North Carolina and Tennessee, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Up to 1.7 million people have been ordered to evacuate across South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.

The ocean is moving inland ahead of Florence as storm surge begins to flood the Carolinas coast, according to the NHC.

As Hurricane Florence barreled across the Atlantic towards the East Coast, researchers were keeping a close watch.

It is more likely that Ireland, Scotland and northern England will see winds of 10 to 20mph, and gusts up to 40mph.

To put the rain in perspective, Wilmington's three-day rainfall record was 19.66 inches set in 2010, said Jordan Baker, a meteorologist with the NWS Wilmington office.

The storm is now around 530 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and is moving west-northwest at 17 mph.

Helene is among a glut of tropical storms brewing in the region, with mass evacuations under way in southern USA states as Florence barrels across Virginia and the Carolinas.

"WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU", the city of New Bern tweeted around 2 a.m.

Latest weather prediction models suggest Britain could be ravaged by a series of deep low pressure systems next week following Helene.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Power outages were reported across Puerto Rico Friday morning as Tropical Depression Isaac dropped rain across the USA territory. While development into a tropical depression is not expected since the system is nearly onshore, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely across portions of northeastern Mexico and Texas through Saturday.
