Tropical Storm Grace: Cheerio To The UK
Based on long-range estimates of Tropical Storm Grace, the extra-tropical remnants of Grace will likely grace the British Isles Wednesday and Thursday. By that time, Grace will have weakened its maximum sustained winds, and also have lost its tropical characteristics. Still, Grace's remnants will be a strong low-pressure system sweeping through parts of Ireland and Britain.
Winds right now are about 70 mph sustained, and Grace is a rather tiny storm with tropical storm force winds extending only about 50 miles away from the center.
In fact, you can already see Tropical Storm Grace on the UK's regional satellite image:
You can see the eye of Grace in the bottom left of this image.
