  • Prepare for sub-tropical Storm Ernesto

MORE: When will Storm Ernesto hit the United Kingdom and what is the latest weather forecast for this weekend?

"On the forecast track, Ernesto will approach Ireland and the United Kingdom on Saturday", the NHC said in its latest public advisory.

Yorkshire is set to be hit by long periods of heavy rain over the weekend as Storm Ernesto looks set to batter the UK.

Maximum sustained wind speed is 60 miles per hour with gusts to 70 miles per hour.

The storm is in the mid-Atlantic at present but is expected to hit westerly parts of Britain on Saturday night. It will then weaken and become an ex-tropical storm by the weekend.

However, Sunday in Blackpool will then see heavy rain return from early morning to early in the afternoon. The north east and Scotland will stay at around 19C.

Northern Ireland, Scotland and western England are all expected to feel the effects of the severe weather, which could potentially be upgraded to a hurricane today.

A southwards shift in the jet stream has allowed low pressure from the Atlantic Ocean to unleash cooler and wetter weather across the UK.

Storm Ernesto is now brewing over the North Atlantic and is expected to hit Ireland on Saturday night.

Thermometers could surge into the high 20Cs in parts of south-east England and London on Saturday and Sunday, the warmest days this week.

Temperatures are predicted to reach the mid-20s, with possible highs of 25C. It will turn dry in most areas, with some warm brighter spells in the east, and a maximum temperature of 20 °C.
