It’s not all that uncommon for the remnants of US hurricanes to reach the UK, bringing turbulent weather.
However, by the time they reach UK, the systems are nowhere near their original power.
Currently, there are five weather systems churning in the Atlantic, two of them already tropical storms.
Tropical Storm Rene is currently located 800 miles west northwest of the Cabo Verde Islands and according to the US’ National Hurricane Centre (NHC) the storm is becoming stronger.
Another tropical storm, Paulette, has meanwhile turned a little weaker, but is expected to restrengthen in a couple of days.
