    This one may not stay out to sea, either. We'll have to keep an eye on it. My gut instinct tells me this could be a fairly big storm hitting the U.S. Hope I am wrong, though.

    I haven't had enough coffee but I think I heard the news say it was already 110 miles per hour. Hope it stays in the Atlantic.

    As of 11:00 p.m. EDT, Tropical Storm Helene was located near 17.2 north, 43.7 west or about 1,195 miles east of the Leeward Islands. The storm is moving west-northwest at 14 mph with estimated maximum-sustained winds of 70 mph with higher gusts. Helene may strengthen into a hurricane early Saturday morning. The estimated central pressure is 992 millibars, or 29.29 inches of mercury.

    Helene remains to the south of a large high pressure area located over the central Atlantic. This high pressure area will keep Helene on a west-northwest course through the weekend. An upper-level trough moving off the East Coast Friday night and Saturday will move east and cause Helene to track more northward by early next week. This should keep Helene east of Bermuda.

    Helene could undergo rapid intensification similar to Gordon over the weekend. At this point we expect Helene to become a category 2 hurricane with winds over 95 mph by the end of the weekend and perhaps become a major hurricane if the shear stays low over the system.

    Elsewhere in the tropical Atlantic, we are tracking tropical waves along 20 west, 74 west and 83 west. All these waves will continue to track to the west.
