THE remnants of Hurricane Helene will be the first in a wave of storm systems to pound the UK with torrential rain and powerful gales before September’s end, forecasters have said.

Storm Helene is forecast to slam into the UK on Monday afternoon after losing its hurricane status while churning northeast through the Atlantic Ocean.

Savage conditions expected to be caused by the storm have promoted the Met Office to issue a severe weather warning for 80mph gusts that pose a “danger to life”.

Days of travel disruption, power cuts and hazardous conditions are forecast to blight western regions of England and Wales, where the effects of the storm will be felt most acutely.

However, forecasters believe Helene could just be the beginning as summer draws to a close, with more storm systems threatening to develop in the Atlantic.

“Several other storm systems are expected to follow in Helene’s wake through week’s end,” AccuWeather meteorologist Renee Duff has warned.

Latest weather prediction models suggest Britain could be ravaged by a series of deep low pressure systems next week following Helene.

Forecast timelines by WX Charts show bands of low pressure could impact Scotland and northern regions of England on Wednesday and Friday.

In the meantime, ferocious winds from Helene threaten to whip across western regions Monday evening, heralding a day of disruption and hazardous conditions.

The Met Office issued two “yellow” alerts on Friday as the storm began creeping towards south-western corners of the UK and the tip of Ireland.
