Hurricane Lorenzo is continuing to home in on Ireland and the United Kingdom. The latest forecast advisory suggests that the British Isles could begin seeing impacts from the storm as early as Wednesday night. Furthermore, forecasters don’t expect to see a significant reduction in strength in the next 48 hours.

The eye of the storm is slated to cross into the area early Friday morning. Meteorologists from the National Weather Service say the storm has a 70% chance of bringing tropical storm-force winds to the Emerald Isle.

Meanwhile, in the Caribbean, two disturbances have appeared overnight. Forecasters currently put the chance of further development in the next five days at a low 10%.

The system south of Cuba should continue moving towards the Yucatan Peninsula while the system in the western Caribbean is expected to be escorted to the mid-Atlantic by a surface trough.
