Storm Helene wind warning issued

Three hurricanes are currently active in the Atlantic

"Overcast with moderate to heavy rain for south-west England, Wales, Ireland, north-west England and Scotland with fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds through the afternoon and evening".

"Currently, Helene is 2000km southwest of the Azores and remains a category 1 hurricane, with sustained winds of 130kph and gusts in excess of 170 kph", he continued.

However, it has put out a yellow "be aware" warning which extends across much of Dumfries and Galloway.

The turbulent weather is coming off the back of one of number of major storms now raging in the Atlantic, another of which, Hurricane Florence, has caused mass evacuations on the east coast of United States this week.

Irish weather authority Met Eireann has said it expects wet and windy weather from Storm Helene to hit the southern coast of the Republic on Tuesday, but does not expect any "severe or damaging weather".
