Storm Kyle to hit Northern Lincolnshire

Storm Kyle is forecast to hit Northern Lincolnshire later this week, bringing with it a blast of wet and windy weather.

Storm Kyle began in the north-west Atlantic.

Thunderstorms, rain and grey skies have already dominated much of the forecast this weekend, bringing an end the intense heat.

Now, it is expected that remnants of the tropical storm will head across the ocean to the UK, bringing autumnal weather by Friday.

Grimsby and Scunthorpe are likely to be affected.

Damp and cloudy weather is expected throughout much of the week, with temperatures remaining noticeably cooler than over the past week or two.

Light thunder is also possible, as are highs of around 24C, and lows of around 14C.

As of Friday, gusts of more than 40mph are expected across Northern Lincolnshire.

Following recent heatwaves, wet weather is forecast to remain throughout much of the weekend.

Meteorologist Marco Petagna said:

“Remnants of tropical storms can get caught in the jet stream and bring premature autumnal weather to the UK.

“Computer models show tropical storm Kyle doing just this. It’s a big change in the weather.”

As Storm Kyle hits Northern Lincolnshire, it is expected to cause severe thunderstorms elsewhere in the UK.

Warnings for winds of up to 55mph and possible flooding have been issued, as heatwave conditions come to an end.
