United Kingdom faces wet and windy weather as Hurricane Maria's remnants approach

Warm until late week, Hurricane Maria stays offshore

As of the last advisory from the hurricane center, at 4 a.m. CDT Saturday, Tropical Storm Maria was located about 505 miles south-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and was moving to the east-northeast at 32 mph.

The remnants of hurricane Maria and Lee are expected to unleash wet and windy weather in the United Kingdom by the weekend. Flooding was evident in other places like the Neuse River in New Bern and the Pamlico River in areas such as Pamlico County and Washington.

Winds have picked up along the Outer Banks as Tropical Storm Maria is passing along the coast.

The major effects from Maria this week will be tidal flooding, wind gusts and rip currents - especially in the Outer Banks.

Meteorologists are now watching the progress of hurricanes Lee and Maria as they take curved tracks across the North Atlantic.

The National Weather Service says there is a storm surge warning in effect for the Ocracoke Inlet to Cape Hatteras, and a Tropical Storm warning is in effect for Cape Lookout to west of Ocracoke Inlet, as well as north of Cape Hatteras to Duck. A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.

Lee peaked at maximum winds of 115 miles per hour three days ago, according to the NHC.

You can see this in the way the yield curve actually flattened as long-term Treasury bonds failed to decline as one would expect. She said the Fed would adjust its policymaking if it thought the causes of low inflation had become permanent.

The islands were expected to get only a glancing blow as weakening Tropical Storm Maria was forecast to move about 150 miles (240 kilometers) offshore Wednesday.

Hatteras and Ocracoke islands lost about 10,000 visitors to evacuation orders earlier in the week, the Associated Press reported.

Since Harvey formed in the Gulf of Mexico on August 24, forecasters have been watching the Atlantic for likely threats to the United States or the Caribbean islands. "We do not expect Maria to regain hurricane status".

"Ex-Maria will still contain tropical air brought north and it is this air which has the potential to affect our weather".

Then there's Lee! Lee is a category 2 hurricane, but a much smaller storm.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday on Twitter that President Donald Trump had "authorized the Jones Act be waived for Puerto Rico". Though a ridge situated to the north of the storm will temporarily slow it down, it will pick up in speed by Thursday and move east-northeast into the open ocean.
