"But it could have a positive effect on eastern parts because it could also bring tropical air".

At 800 AM AST (1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Isaac was located near latitude 14.4 North, longitude 54.1 West. Isaac is moving toward the west near 15 miles per hour (24 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue through the weekend. This as Tropical Storm Isaac continues to weaken. Tropical Storm Warnings are in place for the Azores Islands, but that is the only land that could be impacted by Helene over the next 24 hours.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area. A tropical storm watch was issued for Antigua, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Saba and St. Eustatius.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com calculated that Florence could dump a staggering 18 trillion gallons (68 trillion litres) of rain over a week on North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Maryland. Of course, the size and strength of the storm surge depends on the size and strength of the hurricane-but Hurricane Florence is absolutely massive, and its storm surge is likely to be on the same scale.

Forecasters say catastrophic freshwater flooding is expected over parts of North Carolina and SC ahead. Still, the system is forecast to bring heavy rains to the Coastal Bend.

Besides Florence, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is monitoring four other systems now.
