Hurricane HELENE is heading for the UK! ExtremeWeather

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.
