Weather forecast UK LIVE – Warning as ‘thunder fever’ to bring ‘SUPER pollen’ after ex-tropical storm Alex

EX-TROPICAL storm Alex will bring strong winds and thundery downpours, together with warm temperatures and a high pollen count – prompting warnings for hay fever sufferers.

Forecasters say the unseasonably strong winds could reach up to 55mph.

Airborne allergens expert Max Wiseberg told the Daily Star: “With this fine weather thunderstorms are also predicted, and they can bring problems for hay fever sufferers.

“Very high pollen counts are predicted across many parts of England from Thursday onwards causing havoc for the millions of hay fever sufferers in the UK.

“Predicted thunderstorms won’t give respite, as instead they can cause a phenomenon known as ‘thunder fever’.”

Mr Wiseberg, creator of HayMax allergen barrier balm, added: “According to a report in The European Respiratory review, humidity breaks pollen grains into smaller allergenic particles.

“These new pollen grains turn into a kind of ‘super pollen’, and this appears to be more allergenic than normal pollen, causing more severe reactions in sufferers.

“Storms bring pollen grains down which might have otherwise risen above head height out of harm’s way and whipping up pollen grains and fungal spores near the ground.”

  • Brits to bask in glorious mini heatwave end of this week

    BRITS can expect to sweat it out as a mini heatwave sweeps in with temperatures set to hit 24C on Friday.

    The south of England is expected to see the best of the weather, avoiding the worst of the wind and rain and could see temperatures climb to a sizzling 24C.

    Met Office forecaster Darren Bett said:  “There is going to be some tropical air heading our way later this week.

    “It certainly felt a bit warmer I think on Tuesday with more sunshine around and winds fairly light as well and throughout the rest of the week it is still going to be quite warm, temperatures aren’t going to change an awful lot and there isn’t a great deal of rain in the forecast.”

    It is expected to be fairly warm in the run up to Friday.

  • UK weather outlook for Friday and Saturday

    Mostly dry with sunny spells tomorrow however it will be breezy with showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Brightest in the evening.

    Sunny on Saturday for much of England and Wales, especially to the south, but it will be mostly cloudy with showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

  • What the weather has in store over the next 10 days

    If you’re wondering what the weather has in store over the next 10 days, look no further.

    The Met Office has forecast that over the next few days Brits are going to be seeing strong winds.

    Unfortunately, showers will also hit the UK by Friday.

    Watch the full 10 day forecast down below:

  • Forecast for tonight

    Drizzle will spread from the west through the evening, fizzling out and will then mainly affect Scotland.

    Through the early hours, it will be dry for most areas with the odd spot of drizzle in places, mainly in Scotland and southern England, and clear spells will develop.

    Gentle south-westerly winds.

  • ‘No signs of summer heat’ in late June, says BBC

    The BBC has reported that Brits are unlikely to see summer weather for some time, despite being well-into June.

    “During late June and early July the models are struggling somewhat, but are hinting that the Azores high may extend towards western Europe while low pressure moves across Iceland to northern Scandinavia.,” the organisation said.

    “This pattern would drive the occasional front across the United Kingdom. This type of setup would bring near-seasonal temperatures and precipitation with no sign of significant summer heat. Northern Ireland and Scotland could see some windy days, but it should not be on the extreme side.

    “Some other scenarios are possible later in this forecast, especially over the final week. The forecast is very sensitive to the location of the high pressure. Should high pressure set up across Greenland, then the main Atlantic storm track would likely move more directly across northwest Europe. This would bring a wetter and windier pattern.”

    This is probably not the news Brits were expecting as we approach summer.

  • Weekend weather report makes for grim reading

    According to the Met Office, Brits can expect strangely high winds for this time of year.

    This comes as the remnants of tropical storm Alex batters the nation.

    “An area of low pressure, previously Tropical Storm Alex, will move towards the northwest of Scotland, bringing strong winds and large waves to many northern and western areas,” said the Met Office.

    Storm Alex has already killed two in Cuba, and while the weather will not be as extreme here, Brits can still expect brutal winds and rain.

  • Thunderstorms to narrowly avoid London

    In a detailed new graphic, the Met Office has outlined how thunderstorms will bypass London this afternoon.

    “Clusters of heavy showers and thunderstorms continue to move east across southern England, with parts of Dorset, Hampshire, Sussex and Kent seeing some locally torrential downpours, hail and lightning in the next few hours.”

    Not the best weather for June!

  • Brits in for a cool and windy weekend

    According to the Met Office, Brits are in for another mixed weekend.

    Areas in the south will be dry with sunny spells, while the north will feature heavy winds and some rain.

    “Generally dry with bright spells and slight showers. However, windy in the northwest with risk of coastal gales and frequent/heavy showers throughout,” said the Met Office.

    “Temperatures near normal, but cool in the northwest.”

  • What can Brits expect from Storm Alex?

    The Met Office has outlined what kind of weather Brits can expect from Storm Alex when it hits our shores.

    Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Rebekah Sherwin said: “By the time the system that was Tropical Storm Alex gets near UK shores, it will have transitioned into a mature Atlantic low.

    “Although no longer a named storm, it will bring some unseasonably strong winds across the northern half of the UK – especially to the northwest on Friday and Saturday.  

    “The track of the low-pressure system currently looks to be grazing the far northwest of the UK on Friday and Saturday and, although the details are still being worked out, winds are likely to reach around 45mph for many areas in the north of the UK, with a chance of some gusts in excess of 55mph in some exposed northwestern island and coastal areas.” 

  • Pollen levels continue to rise across the UK

    As we move further into peak grass pollen season, pollen levels are on the rise once more.

    According to the BBC, Wednesday and Thursday will see Pollen levels reach their highest for some time.

    Those with allergies will want to make sure they aren’t too badly affected.
