The spokesman said: "Helene is still over the Atlantic but it's weakening and we're a lot more confident of what's going to happen".

A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: "The uncertainty in the forecast remains on Tuesday".

The Met Office warned on Friday the storm could bring hazardous conditions when it sweeps across the north of England and Wales and through the Republic of Ireland.

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. Temperatures will perhaps get up to 25-26c in the southeast, with other parts into the low-twenties.

A spell of strong winds is expected, mainly in the far southwest of England and across western Wales. So we are talking about some fairly strong winds that will likely gust to 55-65 miles per hour over much of the warning area, with possible gusts of 70-80 miles per hour in isolated instances.
