Helene to begin weakening Tuesday night: NHC

(Reuters) - Hurricane Helene is expected to begin weakening gradually on Tuesday night, and is forecast to become a tropical storm on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday.

The hurricane is currently about 1,550 miles (2,495 km) south-southwest of the Azores, with maximum sustained winds of 110 miles per hour (175 km/h), the NHC added.

Helene is turning north-westward over the cooler waters of the Eastern Atlantic, the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
