Hurricane HELENE is heading for the UK!

While many are focusing on the dangerous hurricane Florence, there is another interesting and potentially dangerous tropical system in the Atlantic.

The Category 1 hurricane Helene is heading towards Europe early next week.

Helene is currently still in the central Atlantic, but is moving towards the Azores and it is a beast!

Current satelite images show Helene to be a well defined hurricane with strong winds which could reach in excess of 100MPH.

Helene will eventually become a post-tropical storm and accelerate towards western Europe. It is possible the ex-hurricane Helene will be pushed into British isles and Ireland on Monday and bring gale force winds and torrential rainfall with potentially dangerous conditions.
