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

Joyce forms in the Atlantic

While Florence is not expected to pose any danger to Britain, remnants of Hurricane Helene are expected to hit the country on Tuesday.

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

The huge waves are being produced because currents are trapped by very strong winds moving in the same direction the storm's motion.

A hurricane hunter with the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) flew into the category three Hurricane Florence and reported back Wednesday what he was seeing. The storm had also picked up considerable speed and was racing west at 21 miles per hour toward the Lesser Antilles. Philippine authorities began evacuating thousands of people Thursday from the path of the typhoon, closing schools, readying bulldozers for landslides and placing rescuers and troops on full alert in the country's north.

Forecasters have warned that Storm Helene could pose a danger to life when it bears down on the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland next week. Although the shower activity is still disorganised, upper-level winds are forecast to become more conducive for development, and it is likely that a tropical depression will form Thursday or Thursday night, before the system reaches the western Gulf coast.




National Weather Service officials in Honolulu urged residents to remain careful, noting that the difference between a Category 1 hurricane and a tropical storm is just 5 miles per hour wind speed.

Britain is bracing itself for strong winds and heavy rain as Hurricane Helene makes its way across the Atlantic.

Alachua County Emergency Management Director John Shaw said he and others at the county Emergency Operations Center are monitoring Florence's track, along with other tropical systems, like Tropical Storm Isaac.

Florence is joined by Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene in this snapshot taken Tuesday some 1 million miles away via NASA's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) on the DSCOVR satellite.

From the Ocracoke Inlet to the North Carolina-Virginia border and from the South Santee River to North Myrtle Beach, the NHC forecast that water could rise as high as 6 feet.
