Given the lack of deep convection to sustain the cyclone, continual gradual weakening is expected.

On the right side of this view is Helene, a Category 2 hurricane that will likely peter out in the Atlantic without making landfall, according to the latest update from the National Hurricane Center (NHC), a division of NOAA.

After forecast models showed steering currents collapsing as the storm nears the Carolina coast Tuesday, forecasters shifted the track slightly south. Florence has 130 miles per hour winds, enough to make it a risky Category 4 hurricane.

Tropical Storm Isaac, located 775 miles east of the Lesser Antilles, is moving towards the west near 16 miles per hour (mph). The storm, which just days earlier had been a hurricane, weakened significantly as it approached the the Lesser Antilles and passed with little notice in the USVI, stirring some winds and bringing some hit-or-miss showers to the territory but little else.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the storm was not forecast to hit the Cayman Islands, but residents should continue to monitor its progress.

Rain projections also increased, with some locations along the North Carolina coast now expected to get up to 40 inches. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160 miles from the center.

"Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected across portions of northeastern Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana late this week, and interests there should monitor the progress of this system", it added.
