The aftermath of Hurricane Gert is expected to bring a swell of tropical weather to Britain. The Met Office said August’s patchy weather will continue this weekend in parts of the UK, although the South will largely see a sunny, dry Saturday and a cloudy, showery Sunday, with temperatures of up to 25C.
However, t he remnants of Hurricane Gert could bring more “tropical and humid” conditions to southern and eastern parts as Sunday ends, meteorologist Charlie Powell said. The former category two hurricane is going to be “wrapped up in existing pressure” and weakened as it moves across the Atlantic Ocean.
This means it is likely to be bringing humidity and balminess to Britain and if it hits 26C or 27C on Monday, that will make it the warmest day of August.
