Hurricane Gert aftermath to split UK

The aftermath of Hurricane Gert is expected to hit the UK, splitting the North and South with very different weather.

The storm, currently north of Bermuda, is expected to bring strong winds and rain in the North as it travels across the Atlantic and hits the UK on Sunday.

However, the South is set to bask in sunshine, with temperatures forecast to reach up to 27C on Monday as the low pressure system draws warm air up from Europe.

Met Office forecaster Greg Dewhurst said there was still a “little bit of uncertainty” when it comes to what the weather will bring.

“If the hurricane tracks a little bit further south, that rain will be a bit further south,” he said.

“At the same time, if it tracks further north then the drier, warmer air will be a bit further north too.”

The National Hurricane Centre said on Tuesday that Gert, the Atlantic Ocean’s second hurricane of the season, would be generating winds of up to 80mph before becoming calmer as it moves over colder Atlantic water on Thursday.

A tropical depression in the Atlantic Ocean formed the storm on Sunday, but it did not make landfall.
