Met Office's latest forecast as terrifying new maps show huge thunderstorm heading to UK

3 mins read

Dramatic maps show one huge thunderstorm may engulf the north of Great Britain in a matter of days. The interactive weather model issued by WX Charts is illuminated in yellow, purple and even red indicating the potential strength of the storm which is set to move in from the Atlantic on Tuesday, September 27. At 6am, the powerful and astonishingly large weather front will begin moving easterly, blanketing western parts of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. But by midday, the storm will not hang around, as it will encompass large swathes of the north.

It looks set to cover Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and Liverpool, which the map has highlighted in yellow.  But parts of Yorkshire are shaded in a light red – which may indicate a potential eye of the storm – and the area most adversely affected.

Heading into Scotland, most of eastern and north western parts will also be covered by midday.

Forecasters have not yet commented on its severity, with Jim Dale, senior meteorologist at British Weather Services, saying this prediction is not definitive and is hinged on changes that can inevitably occur in the days before.

He told “It is a long way off and subject to huge changes. It is not on most outputs.”

For the period including September 27, the up-to-date version reads: “Wetter and windier conditions are likely at times in the northwest for the remainder of the period whilst the southeast sees more in the way of dry weather.

“Overnight mist and fog patches possible throughout but these should clear quickly.”

This pattern looks set to continue into next month, the Met Office adds. “We are likely to continue seeing a northwest/southeast split through the end of September and into October.

“This means wetter and windier weather is more likely across the north and west, meanwhile high pressure centred close to the south of the UK means that drier weather is more likely here. Temperatures generally above average for this period.”
