UK faces Atlantic blast as country to be hit by tropical cyclones and downpours

The UK can expect heavy storms and strong winds next week due to tropical cyclones coming out of the Atlantic.

Following milder weather this weekend, tropical storms Danielle and Earl will hit these shores with significant downpours of rain forecasted.

The start of next week is set to see a spiralling front move towards Britain, leading to breezy weather across the south of the country, reports The Express.

Next Wednesday (September 14), another front, passing over northern France, will then bring higher winds to the south east of England, of about 32mph.

And another high-wind front will move in on Thursday (September 15), sweeping across the UK.

Jo Farrow, a senior forecaster at Netweather, said: "There looks to be a lull from the showery downpours this weekend but tropical cyclones in the Atlantic are adding uncertainty to the forecast.

"Danielle will transition into an extratropical cyclone that could affect western Europe, with ex-Earl swirling further west."

Danielle has become the first hurricane of the 2022 Atlantic season off the coast of America.

With winds of nearly 80mph, it is expected to gradually weaken over the following days, dropping back to a tropical storm with consistent winds of 74mph.

Ms Farrow said: "The low will move towards Pembrokeshire during Wednesday night. By Thursday the showers spread over most of England and Wales, again with heavy downpours and thunderstorms.

"As the low continues to move over Britain, eastern Scotland sees an easterly wind and a westerly wind sets in for the Bristol Channel. This pattern continues, of scattered heavy showers rotating around the low which moves slowly eastwards across Britain."

Looking further ahead, it is not until September 20 that another highly-charged storm will whip around the UK, with most of the country seeing 30mph-plus winds throughout the day.

Meteorologists predict that the main eye of the storm will skirt around the bottom of Ireland and Cornwall, before descending south across the French coastline.
