BBC Weather forecast: Storm Helene to trigger MINI-HEATWAVE amid threatening gales

Hurricane Helene Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Florence over the Atlantic

"Storm Helene is not expected to be very pretty therefore we are now odds-on for this month being the wettest September on record", said Coral's John Hill.

"Helene maintains Tropical Storm status in the latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center as the system approaches the western Azores in the central-eastern Atlantic".

"There's some uncertainty about Helene's exact track, but we can see that's it's heading towards the UK".

Tropical Storm Helene is still making her way towards Europe, with the latest indicators predicting it to shift nortwards, directly towards Ireland and the UK.

Meanwhile, it's expected to be dry in most areas this afternoon and evening with some sunny spells, the best of these in the south and east. However, we've got the wind starting to strengthen later and the rain piling into Northern Ireland but particularly parts of Scotland, so limiting our temperature a bit here.

He added that CBDT was "very clear" that this year the government would be able to collect taxes in excess of the budgeted target. Jaitley said the income tax collections have been robust with expanding the base and collections will exceed budgetary targets.

A yellow warning remains in place but the storm is not thought to pose a risk to life. "It's possible that the west coast of Wales and Cornwall could get some winds as well, but we will get a clearer picture of what to expect very soon".

A storm is set to hit Wales slightly earlier than first forecast but the strongest gusts are expected to be weaker, the Met Office has said.

"Helene is expected to bring a period of very strong winds to western parts of the United Kingdom late Monday and for a time on Tuesday", said the forecaster.

In some Irish Sea coastal areas gusts to 55-65 miles per hour are likely with possible isolated gusts in excess of 70 miles per hour in the most exposed places. More rain will develop in the south on Wednesday night.

Will storm Helene influence our weather next week? "The Storm is expected to turn northeastwards with an increase in forward speed as it heads towards Ireland and the United Kingdom".
