Remnants of ex-Hurricane Joaquin to have little impact on the UK

Ex-Hurricane Joaquin is expected to track to the south of UK and have little impact on the UK's weather.

The most recent forecasts show that Hurricane Joaquin, presently moving northeastwards across the Atlantic as a weakening Category 1 storm, is expected to track to the south of UK and have little impact on the UK's weather.

Over the next 24 hours the Hurricane will continue to weaken to become a mid-latitude depression and track eastwards towards Iberia by the weekend before dissipating.

Hurricane Joaquin forecast track 7 Oct 2015

Over the UK, a ridge of high pressure will bring fine conditions for many on Thursday and Friday and will combine with high pressure building from Scandinavia for the weekend. This will prevent any Atlantic weather systems from crossing the country, leaving many places with a generally dry but rather chilly feeling weekend. Northern Ireland and western Scotland will be cloudier with some rain at times, mainly on Sunday.
