A new storm is set to hit the UK this week which will bring heavy downpours and gail force winds, which could cause an “unseasonably strong extratropical cyclone.”

Forecasters have warned that remnants of Storm Kyle will hit Ireland and the UK towards the end of the week which is coming from the US East Coast.

Marko Korosec weather forecaster said, “The remnants of tropical storm Kyle will somehow get ingested into a large, strengthening upper low coming from Greenland into the North Atlantic.

“This will cause a rather rapid intensification of both disturbances and form an extratropical storm.”

Korosec warned, “This will likely result in an explosive development of unseasonably strong extratropical cyclone.

“The system is expected to blast into Ireland and the UK on Friday.”

Temperatures will be cooler this week with Thursday possibly being the warmest day of the week which highs of 20s.

Weather charts show the new North Atlantic depression will build on Wednesday, and Storm Kyle will move east to strike Northern Ireland and west of the UK by Thursday morning.

The south east will miss much of the storm, but by Friday most of the UK and Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the west coast, will be particularly affected.

Korosec said that coastal areas in the UK “should be alert for worsening conditions.”

Weather warnings remain in place by the Met Office for Monday and Tuesday with heavy thunder and lightning and rain.
