Severe weather predicted as powerful Atlantic storm heads for Ireland

Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to be at hurricane strength when it reaches the Lesser Antilles on Thursday NOAA: Sub-Tropical Storm Joyce Projected Path, Spaghetti Models

But in their 11 p.m. Wednesday advisory, the NHC forecasters hastened to add that Isaac still is expected to be producing tropical-storm-force winds when it moves across the Lesser Antilles on Thursday and passes by St. Croix early Friday.

"Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles (815 km)".

It's now expected to continue weakening and dissipate in five days.

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.

"Currently Helene is 2000km southwest of the Azores and remains a category 1 hurricane, with sustained winds of 130kph and gusts in excess of 170 kph".

Isaac became the fifth hurricane of the season late Sunday and was initially expected to strengthen, potentially becoming a Cat 2 storm with 100 miles per hour winds, as it crossed warm ocean waters.

The storm is likely to die out by Wednesday, the forecaster said. Several places already had more than 16 inches (40 centimeters) of rain, and Oriental, North Carolina got more than 20 inches (50 centimeters) in just a few hours.

All of the islands under watch were significantly impacted by Hurricanes Maria or Irma last September, with some of them still trying to rebuild.

The National Hurricane Center is advising Isaac could deliver 4 to 6 inches of rain to Jamaica with the possibility of flash floods.

Some coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore winds.

"There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect", said the NHC in its 11 a.m. September 12 update. "Prepare for long power outages". "There will be some rain but at the moment it doesn't look as though that's going to be the issue".

The storm's center was about 170 miles southeast of Wilmington at 8 a.m. Thursday, according to a National Hurricane Center briefing.

Current guidance has the low pressure system moving northeastwards up through the Irish Sea overnight Monday and early on Tuesday, although the exact path is still uncertain.
