Hurricane Helene has been weakening as it moves to the north and northwest in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Early Tuesday morning, the storm was a strong category two hurricane with 110 mph sustained winds. Wind speeds have fallen to 90 mph this morning (Wednesday), making Helene a strong category one hurricane. The storm is located about 870 miles west-northwest of Cabo Verde Islands and about 1350 miles south-southwest of the Azores. The storm has been encountering some upper level wind shear which is expected to increase over the next few days. As Helene moves northward, the storm will move over colder water temperatures. Continued weakening is expected and the storm will decrease to a tropical storm Thursday night or Friday. Forecast models bring the cyclone close to the Azores on Saturday, which may experience strong winds and heavy rain. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Mace Michaels
