NEMO: Isaac-related showers will continue to affect St Lucia

Tropical Storm Isaac became less organized Thursday as it moved across the eastern Caribbean on its way toward Central America, the National Hurricane Center said.

Tropical Storm Helene is already transitioning to an extra-tropical cyclone southwest of the Azores Islands.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles.

Florence is continuing to move west-northwest at 17 miles per hour, with winds in the 130 miles per hour range, but is giving hints of deviations, says the National Hurricane Center.

A similar section of Wales and the Cornish peninsular are also expected to bear the brunt of any storm-like weather, although much of the rest of England could be noticeably windier by the time Helene hits land on Tuesday morning.

All eyes are on Hurricane Florence and its path toward the Carolinas, but other hurricanes and tropical storms are brewing as well.

Isaac is expected to reach the islands, which remain under a tropical storm warning, by Thursday afternoon and cross the Caribbean through Saturday.

The Atlantic hasn't seen four named storms at the same time since 2008, Phil Klotzbach, hurricane researcher at Colorado State University said in a tweet.

However, according to the latest projections, the storm might shift slightly to the south and affect Georgia with heavy rain and possible flooding. Warmer ocean temperatures drive greater storm activity.

It's a detail that almost got lost among all the wind, rain and storm surge data sent out by the National Hurricane Center on Wednesday.

The centre of Isaac passed between Martinique and Dominica with maximum sustained winds of about 45 miles per hour.

Two high pressure ridges are still expected to be strong enough to force Florence to stall just before, or after, it makes landfall somewhere near the North Carolina/South Carolina border early Friday.

Tropical Storm Watches were also discontinued for St. Maarten, St. Martin, Saba and Eustatius.

Well, mostly those living in the south coast of the country.

Current guidance suggests the potential for warning level winds and perhaps rain with the system.
