Hurricane Sam’s route has prompted a nine-hour weather alert for the United Kingdom.
HURRICANE SAM has been wreaking havoc over the Atlantic, and now it’s threatening to wreak havoc on the UK’s weather. Here’s the latest on the storm’s progress.
The end of Hurricane Sam is expected to have an impact on the weather in the United Kingdom this weekend. Strong gusts and heavy rain are expected to lash Britain, prompting a nine-hour weather warning. Here’s the most up-to-date information on these weather alerts.
Nowhere in the UK is expected to be spared from the heavy rains and winds generated by Hurricane Sam this weekend.
Wet and windy conditions are expected across the UK, according to forecasts.
For the entire UK, a warning has been issued from 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. on Saturday.
Thankfully, Hurricane Sam did not make landfall; it went through North America without causing any significant damage.
The category four storm, on the other hand, is so powerful that it will have an impact on the weather in the United Kingdom next week.
Over the weekend, the Met Office has issued warnings for extremely strong gusts and heavy rain.
The southern and eastern coastal zones are under a yellow weather warning.
The Met Office has advised the people to remain vigilant as they continue to monitor the hurricane’s uncertain path.
Next week, the Met Office is anticipated to make more announcements about how the hurricane will affect the weather.
The impact on UK weather will be severe if the hurricane hits the UK’s jet stream, according to Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern.
“It is currently safely away from the United Kingdom, on the other side of the Atlantic,” he stated.
“It hasn’t had any direct influence on land, but it will be approaching the jet stream and might cause chaos with it.”
It could, if it interacts with the jet stream in a specific way, but it could also have no effect. It is such a little bundle of energy that if it joins the jet stream, it will have a big impact.
“It could push it to the north of the UK, implying that by Friday, high pressure will have built up over the country, making it drier.
Mr McGivern noted that extreme weather conditions may not be unavoidable: “Another scenario is that it won’t strike the plane. “Brinkwire Summary News “..
