Updated: 9/13/2018 9:11:19 AM
Hurricane Helene is becoming better organized today, based on satellite imagery. It has sustained winds of 121 km/h with a central pressure around 986 mbar. Its track will lead it towards the Azores this weekend and then likely towards the British Isles and Ireland on Tuesday next week. Models are suggesting it will remain a very powerful post-tropical storm once it approaches western Europe.

Met Eireann have warned that "very disturbed weather" is on the way as Hurricane Helene u-turns away from America.
The dangerous Atlantic storm is now on a collision course for Ireland, swirling north east towards us.
It is expected to gradually weaken over the coming days with the National Hurricane Center saying it may be downgraded to a tropical storm today, Thursday.
A NHC spokesperson said: “A turn toward the north and northeast with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next few days.

Hurricane Helene is located this Tuesday, about 2,500 kilometers south-southwest of the Azores. According to the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA), the hurricane is expected to reach the archipelago this Saturday, albeit with its reduced intensity and already in the category of tropical storm.
Thus, the IPMA says that "there is a possibility" of the Azores Archipelago to suffer "the influence of this storm from the end of Saturday." However, from the middle of the week the intensity of the hurricane "should start to decrease, and from Friday it is expected to be classified as a tropical storm."

Met Eireann confirm they are are monitoring Hurricane Isaac and Hurricane Helene with fears they could hit Ireland.
Met Eireann‘s Pat Clarke says there is nothing expected between now and Sunday, but they’re “keeping an eye on” Isaac and Helene with the possibility they will make their way to Ireland.
