However, a tropical storm watch remains in effect for Antigua, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saba and St. Eustatius while St. Martin and St. Maarten were added to the watch on Wednesday afternoon.

As of 5:00 pm (2100 GMT) Florence was producing tropical storm-strength winds of 70 miles (110 kilometers) an hour, while it lashed the Carolinas with heavy rains and threatened deadly flash flooding. A Category 4 hurricane at its strongest, Olivia spent about a week swishing around in the Pacific Ocean without making landfall before it weakened into a tropical storm.

The poorly organized, 45-mph storm is not expected to strengthen but should maintain its tropical storm strength for the next few days. Storm force winds extend 160 miles (260 km) to the north of the center.

Two other storms are brewing in the Atlantic, including Hurricane Helene tracking north and east in the central Atlantic, expected to dissipate to a tropical storm, with winds between 39 and 73 miles per hour, by Sunday.

According to the NHC 11 p.m. Tuesday update, Tropical Storm Isaac's center is "outrunning" the deep convection by about a degree due to strengthening westerly shear. The winds of Isaac are not expected to affect the Virgin Islands.

However, it is expected to generate accumulations of rain of between five and seven centimeters in isolated areas of the Lesser Antilles, with a danger of flooding. Along the coast, large waves will accompany the surge.

An outer band associated with Isaac will bring some scattered showers and possible isolated thunderstorms to Barbados today. But in the 9 a.m. advisory, the center said this would "be the last forecast/advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center on this system".

The Met Office website added: "The storm will also bring some rain, the heaviest of which looks likely to be restricted to the west side of the United Kingdom, as well as some warm tropical air, meaning the south east of the country could see temperatures later in the weekend and into the start of next week reaching the mid 20 Celsius".
