Storm Debby set to hit Blackpool with heavy rain and strong gales

UK weather forecast BBC news Met Office weekend

While the wet weather won't bring with it a frigid chill, temperatures will be significantly lower than the balmy climes we've been experiencing of late.

Much like Storm Chris, which also made its way to the United Kingdom over the Atlantic a few weeks ago, the force of Storm Debby is expected to lose some of its power as it crosses the large body of water, but it is still likely to cause some weather disruption to the UK.

Met Office spokesman Richard Miles said: "On Saturday, although it will be mainly dry and sunny in the southeast, there will be rain spreading across the country with a risk of gales along the western coasts; this is being driven by low-pressure coming in from the Atlantic".

The NHC said strong upper-level winds are likely to limit the development of this system for the next day or two, but some gradual development is possible after that time while the system moves slowly westward through early next week.

Up to 30mm of rain could fall in an hour in certain places in the United Kingdom, alongside thunderstorms, lightning, hailstones and winds as strong as 60mph.

Some transport disruption is now expected.

According to the Met Office today Yorkshire will see "Frequent heavy, blustery showers through the day with thunderstorms and hail possible".

As of Friday morning, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center are closely watching an area of low pressure located half-way between the Africa and the Lesser Antilles. Minimum temperature 8 °C. Maximum temperature 17 °C.

"For the south and east it is likely to be dry, some sunshine around that ridge of high pressure and temperatures starting to rise, up to around 25C in London but still further north, in the rain, 19C or 20C".

"Outbreaks of rain on Sunday turning increasingly showery with some brighter spells developing".

The storm will only briefly disrupt the warmer weather, as forecasters are now predicting a return in warm temperatures which could last well into October.

The Met Office this week issued its three-month outlook, which states the United Kingdom could see warmer-than-average temperatures in the autumn.

"The coldest of our five categories is less than 5 per cent".
