Meanwhile, Hurricane Florence was 580 miles south, south east of Bermuda with winds of 115 mph and strengthening into a major storm.

Hurricane Warnings are in effect from the South Santee River in SC to Duck, North Carolina.

Olivia's maximum sustained winds are about 60 miles per hour, after the storm weakened from Category 1 strength, forecasters said.

The Met Office warned: "Storm Helene is expected to bring a period of very strong winds to western parts of the United Kingdom late Monday and for a time on Tuesday". There were no hurricane warnings or watches issued for any landforms due to the storm because there was no land in its path. "Maximum sustained winds remain near 90 miles per hour (150 km/h) with higher gusts".

By the time it moves through the central Lesser Antilles, Isaac is expected to be near hurricane strength before weakening on Friday.

At 1:54 a.m. EDT (0554 UTC) on September 13, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite analyzed Tropical Storm Isaac in infrared light.

The tropical storm remnants are passing south of the island and moving west across the Caribbean region. "More significant weakening is forecast on Saturday as Florence moves farther inland over central SC".

The weekend brings quiet conditions and highs near 80 both weekend days (Sunday being slightly warmer and a bit more humid than Saturday). But in the 9 a.m. advisory, the center said this would "be the last forecast/advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center on this system". "We should also continue to keep our brothers and sisters located in the Carolinas in our thoughts and prayers as Hurricane Florence approaches their area". Some forecasting models say that the storm could dump as many as 35 inches of rain in some areas. "Further strengthening is anticipated, and Florence is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", the NHC warned. "Interests there should monitor the progress of this system, and refer to products from their local weather office", the NHC warned.

Amid a flurry of tropical weather activity in the Atlantic Ocean basin, a new tropical disturbance is set to catch attention in the coming week as it slides from the Caribbean Sea into the western Gulf of Mexico. The storm is more than likely to develop into a tropical depression and bring several inches of rain to the Houston area.
