When a tropical storm, hurricane or sub-tropical storm that forms in the Atlantic is named by the National Hurricane Center, the Met Office does not change the name, referring to the storm as "ex-Tropical Storm Helene", for example.
But in addition to the powerful gales that have triggered a Met Office warning for the next two days, BBC Weather have said Helene will also usher in some tropical air regaling the southeast with rocketing temperatures peaking in the mid-20s.
Those in coastal areas are warned to be wary of large waves hitting the seafront.
Remnants of former hurricane Helene will hit the United Kingdom next week - bringing strong winds and warmer weather.
Some parts could see highs of 26C (78.8F), which is 7C to 8C above average for the time of year, the Met Office said.
"Storm Helene is not expected to be very pretty therefore we are now odds-on for this month being the wettest September on record", said Coral's John Hill.
The Met Office issued a yellow warning for winds to remain in place between Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning for northeast England, northwest England, Northern Ireland, South West Scotland and the Lothian Borders, Strathclyde, Wales and Yorkshire&Humber.
A spell of strong winds is expected, mainly in the far southwest of England and across western Wales.
"There will also be some very warm weather developing".
"By the time it reaches the United Kingdom we're looking at potential for 55 to 65mph gusts, with isolated chances of 70 to 80 miles per hour gusts on exposed high ground or coastal areas", Met Office spokesperson Nicola Maxy told i. More rain will develop in the south on Wednesday night.
Monday sees the arrival of Storm Helene, but with different outcomes depending on where you are.
