FORT MYERS, Fla. -

Tropical Depression Number 8 has been upgraded to Tropical Storm Helene as of the 11 PM advisory.

Helene is just coming off the West Coast of Africa, the farthest storm from the US, and will impact the Cabo Verde Islands this weekend.

Helene has a long journey across the Atlantic before we could determine any impact to the US, however, in the meantime, the storm is expected to slowly and steadily strengthen as it heads west in an environment with low wind shear and warm waters.
