Storm Ernesto Set To Unleash Heavy Rain And Strong Winds

Storm Ernesto Set To Unleash Heavy Rain And Strong Winds

"Subtropical Storm Ernesto has formed out in the Atlantic, it is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone Thursday night or early Friday".

On its projected path, Tropical Storm Ernesto will hit the United Kingdom and cause heavy rains and strong winds in Northern Ireland, Wales and western parts of England.

This places Ernesto west of the United Kingdom and means Ireland and Northern Ireland will be hit first when the storm makes land.

"On the forecast track, Ernesto will approach Ireland and the United Kingdom on Saturday", the NHC said in its latest public advisory. The north east and Scotland will stay at around 19C.

NYU School of Medicine to give all students a full ride
At the same time, all current NYU medical students received emails saying the school is offering them full-ride scholarships too. All students enrolled in the MD degree program are eligible, regardless of their financial need or academic performance.


However, the south of England is not now set to be impacted by the storm.

The weather will most likely be stormy this weekend especially in the north-east.

The heat will then return in the middle of next week, with temperatures creeping back into the mid-20s in the south and midlands.

Dry air is wrapping into the western portion of the system, and there is a limited amount of time for it to strengthen as it will begin moving over cooler waters in the next couple of days.

After the Janata Party's collapse, Vajpayee, along with long-time associate LK Advani and others, set up the BJP in 1980. He was the prime minister who ordered nuclear tests in 1998, stoking fears of atomic war between India and Pakistan.


Clouds and some rain is also forecast, with southern Scotland, Wales and northern England predicted to see light to heavy rain this evening.

Temperatures are forecast to remain in the teens and mid-20Cs this weekend, a far cry from the hottest spell since the summer since 1976 baked Britain in July.

The remnants of the tropical storm are expected to be officially classified as a "post-tropical cyclone" by the time they reach the United Kingdom, after coming across the Atlantic at high speed, the Met Office said on Friday.

Next week, however, hot weather is forecast to return throughout the United Kingdom, sending temperatures rising above average into the high 20 and 30Cs.
