Tropical Cyclone 10 could potentially hit the UK in the first week of September

Heavy rain, stifling humidity and muggy heat will bring monsoon-like conditions across the country early next week.

It will bring a chaotic end to the British summer which saw a bank holiday heatwave followed by chilly winds and lashing rain.

Further downpours, hail and the odd rumble of thunder are forecast for Friday before things settle down for the start of the weekend.

Much of the country will see a mixture of sunshine and showers on Saturday with highs of 25C (77F) possible in parts, experts say.

The UK is them in the firing line for the remains of a former tropical storm due to reach our shores on Saturday night.

It will trigger heavy downpours through Sunday while warm, muggy air will push thermometers back into the mid 20Cs.

It was initially feared the system, known as ‘Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten’, would develop into a full-blown hurricane near North Carolina which would have been called Irma.

However it has since weakened and a separate storm which has formed near the coast of Africa has been given the name.

Potential Tropical Cyclone Ten (PTC Ten) will sweep across the Atlantic over the next couple of days before being picked up by a separate body of low pressure near the UK.

It will pull a swathe of warm, muggy air across the country pushing temperatures up on Sunday and into the start of next week.

Northern Scotland could see gales with heavy rain likely anywhere across Britain into the start of next week.

The Met Office said most people will notice a very warm and muggy feel as tropical air engulfs the country.

Spokesman Grahame Madge explained ‘Ten’ is not related to either Harvey or Irma, neither of which are expected to affect Britain’s weather.

He said: “‘Ten was a tropical depression which formed along the coast of North Carolina and at one point was thought would be given the name Irma.

“However it never developed into a hurricane and what’s left will now travel across to the northeast Atlantic and influence our weather around the start of next week.

“It will bring warm air which will mix in with another low pressure system near the UK, this will make things feel quite humid at the start of next week.

“It will drive some heavy rainfall from Sunday while the north of Scotland could see gales.

“The humidity will be more noticeable in the south especially given it will feel much warmer after the cooler conditions this week.

“Ten is a separate system to both Harvey and Irma, neither of which are expected to come anywhere near the UK or influence our weather.”

Temperatures are forecast to rise to around 24C (75F) or 25C (77F) in the south through the start of next week.

With high humidity it will feel close to 30C (86F) while the north will hover around the 20C (68F) to 21C (70F) mark.

Netweather forecaster Jo Farrow said Friday will remain mostly dry and sunny before things change over the weekend.

While still uncertain, PTC Ten is likely to influence our weather late Sunday and into the start of next week, she added.

She said: “Overall Friday is looking fine and bright with many areas having a dry and sunny day. However, there will still be a few hefty downpours over England, very hit and miss but still not a completely dry forecast.

“By Saturday, the winds will be from the south and it will feel warmer by day.

“There are uncertainties about the rest of the weekend.

“It could be that the high pressure holds on and there is more fine weather, with what is turning out to look like a good spell of weather over the weekend and for the end of the school holidays.

“However, lurking out in the Atlantic is a low pressure which will have links to major low pressure currently moving near to the Northeast US and the far east of Canada.

“This was being monitored by the National Hurricane Centre when it was off the coast of the Carolinas to see if it would form into a Tropical Storm as Irma, but it hasn’t.

“It still is bringing a lot of heavy rain and strong winds and will add its energy and tropical air into developments across the pond.

“This is where the weekend uncertainty comes for us, whether heavy rain will move inform the west over Ireland, to Britain during Sunday.

“It looks like we will get warmer more humid air but all of this has got to come up against the high pressure.”

WeatherOnline forecaster Garry Nicholson added: “High pressure will influence country heading into the weekend, bringing a fine day on Saturday for most places.

“By Sunday, rain develops across western regions.

“We expect a cloudy start to next week, with patchy rain possible, but also some warm sunshine in the east.

“Things look more unsettled by midweek as the remnants of various tropical weather systems move across Britain.

“There will be a risk of heavy rain and strong winds.”
