Katia To Hit UK Next Week?

"All eyes this weekend are set to be on Hurricane Katia which will be moving over the Atlantic towards our shores, set to affect Britain and Ireland by late Sunday and into Monday. It's still too early to put specific details on the possible forecast, but a spell of potentially very wet and very windy is looking likely. More on this in the next few days.

In the meantime, it is rather unsettled out there for many areas today with low pressure in charge. A weather front moving north-eastwards will bring cloudy skies and some rain at times across much of England, Wales and Ireland today. Most of the rain will be out towards the west where it may be heavy, whilst south-eastern areas are drier and a little brighter. The brightest of the weather today will be over northern Britain but here there will be a scattering of showers between the sunny spells. Winds will tend to ease down as we go through the day whilst temperatures will be close to normal for many.

Further rain and showers will push northeast tonight with southern areas turning drier by morning. The heaviest of the rain will be in the northwest, and this rain will continue to move north across Scotland on Friday. Drier conditions will then follow to many areas, although western coasts and hills will remain damp and misty with the southeast turning brighter and warmer."

I was just thinking our weather had been worse the past couple of days than is normal for September... I guess I under estimated how much worse! *Sigh*

Who said, "When it rains, it pours"? They were so right.

Gosh, I hope you don't get more than "just rain" and things don't get waterlogged. Do hurricanes hit the UK very often? Seems to me they usually "taper out" by the time they go by "here". You getting one would just be adding misery to the misery pile.

Hope you hear about the move soon!!! Just a couple days now!

No, we don't tend to get many hurricanes over here. I don't actually remember us ever getting one before... A couple of mini tornados and a few really small earthquakes, but that's mostly all (to my knowledge). I think we're mostly just getting the edge of the rain - judging by a more recent article, which I'll be posting in a minute.

I hope we get to hear about the move soon too! If we'd moved by now we'd definately have been out of the range of where the hurricane is heading...
