Isaac dissipated, and updates on Atlantic storms Helene, Joyce

"It wants to get stronger", he said of the storm. This general motion is forecast to continue today with a decrease in forward speed as it gets over the Caribbean Sea.

A smaller hurricane dubbed Isaac is reportedly heading for the Caribbean, while Hurricane Helene - now also in the Atlantic - is forecast to track towards the UK.

As of 2 p.m., the slow-moving storm barely had Category 1 hurricane strength and was nearly at a standstill over southeastern North Carolina, according to the Associated Press. Satellite images show very little left as a recognizable tropical storm.

Pres. Trump wants to proceed on fresh set of tariffs on China
If both sets of tariffs go ahead it would mean virtually all of China's United States exports would be subject to new tariffs. Ultimately, Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping will likely need to haggle personally over any settlement, he said.


A weather warning for wind has been issued ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Helene in the United Kingdom next week, with injuries and danger to life a possibility. There are 5.25 million people under hurricane warnings and watches and another 4.89 million under tropical storm watches and warnings. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area on Thursday.

The Met Office said it would continue to closely monitor the progress of Isaac and would update the public as needed.

Florence is now churning through the Atlantic, only a few hundred miles off the coast of Wilmington, N.C. It is moving northwest at 15 miles per hour, according to the NHC's update at 11 a.m. Sept 12.

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

Meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com said Florence could dump a staggering 18 trillion gallons of rain over a week on North Carolina, South Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Maryland. Then on Sunday, as a weakening Florence moves away from our region, our winds will gradually weaken during the day, with some wraparound showers possible.

Tropical Storm Helene has sparked weather warnings across the Azores, the Portuguese islands located 1,000 miles off the west coast of continental Europe. "Aside from most likely minor impacts from wind and beach erosion, flooding may be a significant threat due to the slow-moving nature of the storm, although impacts will be substantially fewer than records set during Harvey". Florence has 130 miles per hour winds, enough to make it a risky Category 4 hurricane.
