UK Could Be Hit By Remnants Of 'Storm Chris'

Just as we get used to the fact we now live in a hot country, the UK's weather is keeping us all on our toes and we're due to be hit by a storm - called Chris, apparently.

Chris has already been making his presence felt over in the US where the North Carolina coast has taken a bit of a battering, with winds of 60mph (96kph) recorded.

The storm is due to get 'upgraded' to hurricane status and it looks like its remnants could skip across the pond and hit the UK.

Becky Mitchell, a meteorologist from the Met Office, told the Mirror: "The remnants of Storm Chris could move across the Atlantic and get caught up in different weather systems.

"Much of the week is going to be dry and fine, it will be a bit cooler.

"But towards the end of Sunday and into Monday we are likely to see more changeable weather on the way.

"Things will turn more unsettled, with more average conditions and some rain."

She added that we probably won't be getting much wind but that rain could be likely. I can't be the only miserable bastard who is actually looking forward to a bit of rain after the past few weeks, surely?

And before you bin your barbecues and dig out your wellies, the Met Office has still forecast warm weather, just not as for-God's-sake-even-my-eyelids-are-sweating hot as it has been lately.


A forecaster for the Met Office said: "Although it will be less hot than recently, there will still be some warm and sunny spells at times."

Today London can expect temperatures of around 25C, whereas Manchester could see 22C and Newcastle 18C, a refreshing change from the 30+ temperatures we've had to put up with the past few weeks.

There will also be cloudy conditions, but don't let that fool you, you can still burn, so make sure you're still slapping on the factor 50, eh? Your skin will thank you.

The cooler weather is also good news for hay fever sufferers as pollen levels are low and medium across the UK, following a few weeks of eye-watering, sneeze-inducing highs.
