  • A number of hurricane and tropical storm watches have been issued for Tropical Storm Isaac

Moderate to strong northwesterly shear and dry mid-level air are likely to cause Isaac to weaken to a tropical depression or even become an open wave within the next day or so, the NHC reported.

Since then, Isaac has meandered in the Caribbean Sea and, as a depression, lashed the Lesser Antilles Friday morning with rain squalls and 35 miles per hour winds. As Tropical Storm Helene to the east-northeast of Joyce moves away, Joyce is expected to turn northeastward with an increase in forward speed during the next 24 h, followed by an eastward turn after 48 h.

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Olivia was close to Hawaii, where tropical storm warnings and watches are in effect, according to the Pacific Hurricane Center.

The Met Office website added: "The storm will also bring some rain, the heaviest of which looks likely to be restricted to the west side of the United Kingdom, as well as some warm tropical air, meaning the south east of the country could see temperatures later in the weekend and into the start of next week reaching the mid 20 Celsius".

The public is encouraged to continue monitoring the Met Office via its social media accounts and website at www.metoffice.gov.tt for updates.

"Florence is a unique storm in the path it has taken", Fox News' meteorologist Adam Klotz asid.


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".

Florence has 130 miles per hour winds, enough to make it a unsafe Category 4 hurricane.

Storm surge occurs when the hurricane-force winds blow over the ocean water.

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina. Heavy rain and winds from Olivia downed trees, knocked out power and prompted evacuations of several homes on Hawaii's Maui island but spared the state widespread damage Wednesday.

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