Weather warning as Storm Helene blows in

Weather warning as Storm Helene blows in

Dorset is "likely" to feel the force of Storm Helene, the Met Office says. It will give us some strongish winds, some wet weather as well but the energy in it will also bring some warmth.

Ms Williets also said that the clear impact of Helene on the United Kingdom remains unclear as computer models struggle to function effectively when a "tropical storm or the remains of it" continue churning towards the country.

Bizarrely temperatures could surge to 27C as we approach October.

Meanwhile, it's expected to be dry in most areas this afternoon and evening with some sunny spells, the best of these in the south and east.

A yellow warning remains in place but the storm is not thought to pose a risk to life. However, a spell of strong winds are expected, starting with parts of south-west England and west Wales, then later south-west Scotland and the south-east of Northern Ireland.

It comes as the Met Office has ramped-up warnings ahead of Helene hitting landfall, by issuing a yellow "be aware" warning from 6pm to 8am Tuesday.

"There will also be some very warm weather developing". Nearly quite a bonkers set up into the early half of next week. More rain will develop in the south on Wednesday night.

While Hurricane Florence pounds North Carolina, another tropical storm is on track to reach Britain early next week.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)'s National Hurricane Centre (NHC), the storm is to calm in the near future.

"It looks like Helene will move towards Ireland on Tuesday morning".
