Storm Ernesto set to hit Lancashire with heavy rain and wind

Storm Ernesto set to hit Lancashire with heavy rain and wind

It was packing 60 miles per hour winds.

According to the Met Office, Storm Ernesto will no longer be classified as a storm when it arrives in the United Kingdom, due to it losing some of its power as it heads across the body of water, but it will still impact on the United Kingdom with heavy rain and strong winds.

Storm Ernesto is now moving east across the ocean and is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone by later today or tomorrow.

"The track will see it head for Ireland Saturday night but at present it is forecast very breezy with some rain".

Northern Ireland, Scotland and western England are all expected to feel the effects of the severe weather, which could potentially be upgraded to a hurricane today.

McGivern said: "It will be a fresh start as we begin Friday".

It is now wrapped in areas of smoke, which have been transported by upper atmospheric winds from the wildfires in western United States of America and Canada.

A southwards shift in the jet stream has allowed low pressure from the Atlantic Ocean to unleash cooler and wetter weather across the UK.

"Through Friday, increasing amounts of cloud and some rain moving its way in".

There will be heavy rain and wind throughout most of the day on Sunday, with a peak temperature of around 19C.

Thermometers could surge into the high 20Cs in parts of south-east England and London on Saturday and Sunday, the warmest days this week.

Saturday afternoon should be grand because it's set to be "rather cloudy and misty generally, with some patches of drizzle scattered about, these mainly over Ulster and parts of north Connacht".
