The potential track could have her follow hot on the heels of Helene.

As for Tropical Storm Helene, the system continues to approach the Azores within 155 miles of Flores Island as it turns northeastern with winds of 70 mph.

The storm is moving at 17 miles per hour to the west and has 60 miles per hour winds.

Fox News reported that sustained winds were picking up a bit along the North Carolina coast.

Ireland is expected to endure the worst of the storm, while Wales and the Cornish peninsula will bear its brunt in England.

The system grew into a named tropical storm last Saturday afternoon and flared up to a Category 1 hurricane Sunday night - becoming the fifth-named hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season.

Storm Helene is now speeding northward towards the Azores Islands in the mid-Atlantic, and the Met Office expects it to bring very strong winds to western parts of the United Kingdom and Ireland on Monday evening.

Some towns have already been soaked by more than 2 feet (60 centimetres) of drenching rains, and forecasters warned that totals could reach 3 1/2 feet (1 metre), unleashing floods well inland through early next week. A west-northwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

No storm warnings have been posted yet for the territory, but tropical storm warnings are in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.

However, it's not too late to prepare for Hurricane Florence - or any other storm that may move through Coweta County.

On Sept. 13, Helene is weakening while moving northward over the eastern Atlantic and interests in the Azores should monitor the progress of the storm. "There will be some rain but at the moment it doesn't look as though that's going to be the issue".

"We could get some rain and gusty winds".

North Carolina alone is forecast to get 9.6 trillion gallons, enough to cover the Tar Heel state to a depth of about 10 inches (25 centimeters).

Less rain is predicted for St. Thomas, St. John and Water Island.
