Although Lane is expected to continue moving west "for the next day or so", it's still forecast to subsequently turn toward the west-northwest and become a hurricane by Friday and possibly a major hurricane over the weekend, according to weather officials.

Subtropical Storm Ernesto has recently formed over the north Atlantic and it's set to reach Ireland by Saturday night.

Storm Ernesto is now making its way over the Atlantic and is set to bring wet and windy weather conditions to Lancashire this weekend.

As the storm shifts into cooler waters, it is expected to transition into a post-tropical system within the next 24 hours. It is expected to be contained in an area of low pressure by the time it passes over the region.

According to the Met Office, Storm Ernesto will no longer be classified as a storm when it arrives in the United Kingdom, due to it losing some of its power as it heads across the body of water, but it will still impact on the United Kingdom with heavy rain and strong winds.

She said: "There is a bit of uncertainty on Saturday because of Tropical Storm Ernesto".

Gusts will peak at 40mph around the United Kingdom late on Saturday and during the early hours of Sunday morning when the storm arrives over the UK.

"But by the time it arrives it won't be a storm anymore and we don't have any warnings in place at the moment".

However, the main band of rain is set to arrive in the early hours of Sunday morning, and is then expected to pull away, leaving the skies considerably clearer by midday.

This weekend sections of the United Kingdom will be hit with strong winds of up to 50 or 60 miles per hour, especially around the most exposed coastal hills such as the Northern Isles.

A spokesperson for The Weather Channel said: "A cold front now affecting the United Kingdom and Ireland will sweep south-westwards across north-western and central Europe over the second half of the week".

Britons residing in Scotland and Northern Ireland are also going to notice a fresher feel to the air and one or two showers are likely.

Temperatures could soar into the 30Cs in southern England and London later next week with spells of glorious sunshine over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Friday in the south is set to be generally dry, although warm, humid and often rather cloudy.
