Hurricane Bertha growing in size and could hit UK on the weekend

It is expected to downgrade to a post-tropical storm, but could bring with it torrential rains and strong winds

Strong winds, torrential rains and large waves next weekend could put the brakes on the recent glorious weather experienced in the UK, thanks to a hurricane making its way over from the Caribbean.

Hurricane Bertha began heading north and then east after gaining momentum in the Bahamas yesterday.

According to the National Hurricane Centre in the US, it is expected to grow in size before becoming a post-tropical cyclone with winds of up to 73mph, reaching Ireland on Saturday night.

The Met Office has said, however, that its definite course is still unknown – hypotheses include Bertha heading towards France “as a weak feature which will completely miss the UK, to its arriving as a fairly active summer storm.”

In a blog post on its website, the Met Office continued: “In terms of timing, there’s also a spread of possibilities – but it looks likely that the earliest Bertha would affect the UK would be on Sunday or into the start of next week.”

Yup, Bertha is predicted to come here to die

Waning hurricane to bring slight chill next week

The extended-play heat wave swaddling Finland is set to lift next week as the remains of a fading hurricane sweep over the country, says Yle meteorologist Toni Hellinen. With it, residents will see a return to temperatures usually considered normal at this time of year.

Quote: Worst Hurricane to Hit England On Oct. 15/87 a BBC weatherman famously dismissed any rumours that a hurricane was on its way to southern England. Scientifically he was correct, but Southern England still suffered the worst storm since 1703 and 4th worst since records began. Such a storm is only predicted to occur in the United Kingdom once every 300 years.

Since 1987 the number of recording stations and the use of satellites has increased greatly. It is unlikely that the UK would be caught out in such a way again!

Although not defined technically as a hurricane, gusts up to 122 MPH caused havoc and extensive damage across London and the Home Countries. A total and unequalled 15 million trees were lost, including 6 of the famous oaks at Sevenoaks. 18 people were killed. London lost power for the first time since the Blitz and 1.9 billion pounds of damage was caused. A ship capsized at Dover and across the channell a ferry was blown ashore near Folkestone. 90% of Kent's roads were blocked due to fallen trees and other damage. The Great Storm of 1987 could have claimed many more than the 18 lives if it had hit Southern England during daylight hours.

The October 1987 Southern England storm front was noted to be the WORST cyclic storm to hit the area in 300 years and was probably caused by the SAME Nature Intelligences who also blew the Spanish Armada off course when it tried to invade England a few centuries before, similar to the Kamikazi Divine Wind that blew the Chinese (and Mongolian and Korean as well) fleet off course (twice!) on its way to invade Japan.

The weatherman was Michael Fish. I remember watching the report at the time!
