Cyclone Nigel will bring back a scorching heatwave next week

Meteorologist John Hammond has released some good news about the weather in the UK today, as a new hurricane prepares to cross the mid-Atlantic towards Britain.

Hurricane Nigel, which formed in the Atlantic Ocean late Saturday, strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane early Monday and could bring sweltering temperatures to Britain by early next week.

In an appearance on GB News’ The Live Desk, Hammond outlined the latest forecast for Britain as Cyclone Nigel sends scorching winds towards the UK, bringing warmer temperatures.

“There’s another hurricane in the mid-Atlantic called, believe it or not, Nigel, and Nigel could have the opposite effect on us,” John said. “It’s one we’ll be watching.”

Watch the full interview below:

“But this weekend and into next weekend, Nigel may actually impact the jet stream, making it spin on its axis. Next week we will likely settle into good, warm weather again. This shows that different cyclones can have different impacts.” On our weather.

GB News presenter Martin Daubney asked John what his predictions were for autumn, after temperatures set records across the country, rising above 30 degrees for seven days in a row.

“What can we expect from more of the same, more flash floods?” Martin asked.

“No, I don’t think so,” Hammond replied. I think it’s kind of a return to some kind of normal fall to be honest. So, there’s a fair amount of wind and rain, but I don’t think there’s going to be anything too disruptive, or too impactful, for example, in the next two or three days.

“However, we will get a good hit from the combination of wind and rain. The storms and flooding that I mentioned a moment ago, were caused by a mixture of warm air at the surface. A lot of us have had a very hot start to the weekend, haven’t we, especially in some areas Southeast.

“So we had hot air in place near the ground, and then cold air came on top of that. When you get warm air underneath the cold air and add a little moisture, everything rises and explodes very quickly. Hence the thunderstorms all over the Western states.”

John continued: “You say some places have seen a month’s worth of rain in just a few minutes. Now no drainage system would be able to cope with that, which is why we saw such scenes from Exeter Airport.

“But this mixture of warm air and cold air is swept away by the jet stream.”

The meteorologist then warned of another former hurricane making its way across the Atlantic alongside Hurricane Nigel. Cyclone Lee is expected to bring heavy rain and winds of up to 60mph in Scotland, according to the Met Office.

“Hurricane Lee, which struck parts of the northeastern states and eastern Canada over the weekend, is now blasting across the Atlantic,” Hammond added.

“It’s weakening, but it’s going to bring some very stormy weather through this week. There’s going to be some rain, but like I said at the beginning, I don’t think the rain is going to be so severe that it’s going to cause the kind of flash flooding that we’ve seen over the last 24 hours.”

“So Lee will have some impacts on us in the form of some wind and rain, but it’s pretty normal fall weather. There will be some weather warnings for a combination of wind and rain, but I’m not expecting major impacts.”
