Tropical Storm Ida is meandering over the Atlantic

Here comes Tropical Storm Ida: UK to be lashed by gales and heavy rain in just 10 DAYS.

Meteorologists blame a powerful El Nino warming in the Pacific Ocean combined with a weakening ridge of high pressure for “opening the door” to autumn storms. “The eventual track and development of tropical storm Ida currently 1090 miles off Barbados may well impact the jet stream and our weather by the end of September.” They blame what has been dubbed the strongest El Nino in history which is already been linked to relentless typhoons in the Pacific and is strong enough to throw the UK’s weather into chaos.There is no need to be worry about a storm threat at this point though as upper level wind shear will likely stymie any true tropical system from forming in the Gulf during this time period despite what some computer models show.

A sunnier start to the day is ahead now that yesterday’s front has pushed south of the area, but only slightly cooler temperatures have returned as a result. AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said: “Strengthening storms from the Atlantic Ocean will bring the threat for damaging winds to Ireland, the United Kingdom, northern France, Belgium and the Netherlands during late October into November. DPR found that some thunderstorms were dropping rain at a rate of over 142 mm (5.6 inches) per hour. “Ida continues to be a sheared cyclone with the low-level center located to the northwest of an area of very deep convection”, said Senior Hurricane Specialist Lixion Avila in a Tuesday morning forecast discussion message.

AccuWeather is predicting storms across the whole of Europe in the run up to Christmas with Italy, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Bulgaria all braced for floods. Mr Roys added: “An active storm track across southern Europe will result in above-normal precipitation from southern France and much of Spain into Italy and the southern Balkans.

A spokesman said: “You’ll have to make the most of fine weather while it lasts as Britain’s typically changeable weather patterns are predicted to dominate October and November. “The pattern of sea surface temperatures out in the North Atlantic at the moment favours a particularly strong jet stream to develop through the season. “As such, frequent spells of wet and windy weather are likely to affect the UK through these months as deep areas of low pressure are steered towards the country.”
