Tropical Storm Helene heading toward The United Kingdom

  • UK weather: Is Storm Helene going to hit the UK and what’s the latest forecast?

The storm, which by the time it reaches us will be a standard, but deep and intense low pressure area rather than a tropical storm or hurricane, will be with us from Monday and into Tuesday.

Hurricane Helene is now churning northeast through the Atlantic Ocean around 655 miles (1,055 km) south-west of the Portuguese Azores with maximum sustained winds of 70mph. In the Met Office's latest update it is pointed out there is still a large degree of uncertainty on Helene's exact track - something that has been seen with several of the tropical cyclone systems this year.

Yesterday, Met Eireann issued a briefing on Tropical Storm Helene which suggests that we could be more affected by the storm than previously predicted. Bringing with it a spell of wet, windy weather. Temperatures will perhaps get up to 25-26c in the southeast, with other parts into the low-twenties.

Winds of up to 80mph are set to batter Lancashire throughout Monday evening and Tuesday morning as Storm Helene hits the red rose county.


"There will also be some very warm weather developing". Winds are expected to be strongest at sea and along the south and southeast coasts.

The Met Office said: "A spell of strong winds is expected, initially mainly in the far southwest of England and across western Wales".

"In some Irish Sea coastal areas, most likely in Wales and northwest England, gusts to 55-65mph are likely with possible isolated gusts in excess of 70mph in the most exposed places". Nearly quite a bonkers set up into the early half of next week.

The latest advisory from the NHC states the storm will transition towards a tropical depression when it nears the United Kingdom and Ireland. But it will not be used for Tropical Storm Helene.
