Storm Helene to bring wet and windy weather to Ireland

NOAA: Sub-Tropical Storm Joyce Projected Path, Spaghetti Models

83-Foot Wave Recorded By Satellite Monitoring Hurricane Florence

That's as high as an eight-story building.

With Florence expected to be farther north at landfall, we will have no impacts from this storm locally other than large waves.

The mammoth waves were spotted early Wednesday in the storm's northeast quadrant, said the NHC's Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch, which has been documenting Florence's waves all week.

ESRI created a tracker to estimate just how many people would be affected by the storm's path given key demographic data from the area inside the error cone.

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

A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: "The uncertainty in the forecast remains on Tuesday".

Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm force winds have been battering the Outer Banks and SE coastal NC for most of the afternoon, but as Hurricane Florence veers closer to the Carolinas coastline, hurricane-force winds are also inching closer to land.

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. Many areas in the low-lying city flood with routine rain storms, causing street closures and detours.

She said: "Helene is moving up from the Atlantic towards us".

The National Hurricane Center (N.H.C.) in its 5:00 p.m. advisory said all tropical storm watches and warnings for Isaac have been discontinued, news that will be welcomed by interests in the Caribbean.


Tropical Storm Watches were also discontinued for St. Maarten, St. Martin, Saba and Eustatius.

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

"Stay tuned" was the National Hurricane Center's best advice Friday night.

We have seen this unfold before, when out of a very quiet hurricane season develops a rapidly intensifying hurricane that barrels toward the mid-Atlantic U.S. east coast.

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

While Hurricane Florence has sparked state of emergency and mass evacuation, a very unfortunate weather graphic has managed to put a smile on those preparing for the storm.

The water could reach as high as 9 to 13 feet "from Cape Fear to Cape Lookout, including the Neuse, Pamlico, Pungo and Bay Rivers".

On the current projected track the centre of this system is forecast to pass between 100 and 150 miles (160 to 240 km) north of Barbados early on Thursday morning.

It was a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm but was expected to keep drawing energy from the warm water and intensify to near Category 5, which means winds of 157 miles per hour (253 kph) or higher.
