UK storm warning: Britain will be battered by the ashes of a US hurricane; the weather forecast isn’t looking good.
According to a forecaster, the UK will be pummeled by “hurricane ashes” that will travel over the Atlantic from the United States.
For weeks, the UK has been enduring a dry spell brought in by the high pressure system that hung above the country. By acting as a buffer for low pressure systems coming over from Europe and the Atlantic, the weather pattern known as an Omega Block kept late August quiet and tranquil. However, according to Jim Dale, a senior forecaster at British Weather, the UK’s weather would not be “particularly attractive” in a fortnight since the Omega Block “will inevitably break down.”
“This weather that we’re having now has significant implications,” Mr Dale told this website. There will always be.
“If we have a calm stretch like this, you can bet that the second part of September will be more turbulent, and we’ll pay the price in some way.”
“It’s very often the case that when you come out of a drought, you come out with venom, and it’s hurricane season,” the forecaster stated.
Mr Dale cited the current hurricane season in the United States, which is wreaking havoc.
He predicted that some of those hurricanes would make their way to Britain near the end of the storm season, which is usually around October.
He underlined, however, that by the time they get in the UK, they will only be “ex-hurricanes.”
“This does not, of course, indicate that we will have storms, but hurricanes are currently occurring on the other side of the Atlantic,” Mr Dale said.
“As September progresses, they’ll happen a little more.
“They’ll deepen, and you’ll have a bigger one, which will finally break down the Omega Block we have.”
“And it essentially will mean that we don’t end up with a hurricane, but rather the ashes of a hurricane, low pressure centers, deep low, possibly a lot of wind and a lot of rain,” the forecaster added.
“So make the most of this weather, that’s what I’d tell folks, because I don’t think it’ll be very lovely beyond the next 14 days.”
