Hurricane Sam warning for the United Kingdom: How the Atlantic Category 4 hurricane could affect weather in the United Kingdom.
HURRICANE SAM is intensifying over the Atlantic, and experts are hopeful that it will not make landfall in the United States, but they have warned that the storm might have an impact on the United Kingdom.
Hurricane Sam is barreling over the Atlantic, heading for the United States. The rampaging twister has now reached Category 4 strength. New warnings have been issued by forecasters, warning Britons that the storm could have an influence on the weather in England. Is it necessary for Brits to prepare for bad weather? Here’s the most up-to-date information on this major storm.
As it approaches the United States, Hurricane Sam is generating gusts of up to 150 mph.
As it advances west across the Atlantic, the storm continues to strengthen.
For several more days, Sam is expected to be a significant hurricane.
Although analysts do not expect the storm to come close enough to land to inflict significant damage, it is unclear whether it will have an impact on UK weather.
Hurricane Sam has remained far from any land as of September 28, 11 a.m. ET (4 p.m. BST).
It was roughly 600 miles east of the Northern Leeward Islands in the eastern Caribbean, according to the National Hurricane Center.
While the system is still moving across the Atlantic, the BBC says it’s impossible to say how it will affect the weather in the United Kingdom.
However, they caution that it will likely make things “wetter and windier than usual.”
“Low pressure should be near or overhead, with more frequent weather fronts keeping things wetter and windier than average,” according to the BBC.
“Because of the nature of this weather pattern, it will be highly variable from day to day, and temperature trends will most certainly fluctuate.”
“If further hurricanes emerge in the Atlantic, we may see more temporary interruption to this trend,” it warned.
This year, the United States has been pummeled by an abnormally high number of hurricanes originating in the Atlantic.
Sam is the 18th named storm to form in the Atlantic this year.
The hurricane is also the year’s fourth significant hurricane.
Grace, Ida, and Larry were the other hurricanes that hit this year.
“We are anticipating a very active year for the 2021 season,” the BBC said. “Hurricane season generally concludes at the end of November, and we are forecasting a very active year for the 2021 season.”
There are no coastal watches or weather warnings in effect for Hurricane Sam at this time.
However, experts warn that dangerous seas could reach Bermuda and the Bahamas “in a couple of days.”
While the United States’ East Coast may be affected later this week.
