Hurricane Umberto is the third event of the current hurricane season in the Atlantic, crossing the ocean at 100mph, 525 miles west of Bermuda.

Its current track shows it heading towards the UK by the start of next week but the Met Office is confident it will pass to the north.

Following a Met Office briefing on the matter, Nicky Maxey said: “We are looking at a degree of uncertainty for the north of Britain at the start of next week.

“The rain which we will see late on Saturday and on Sunday is not associated with Umberto. It is purely another low pressure system.

“It has the benefit of pulling up air from the continent, which is why we are getting the hot weather for the start of the weekend.

“Umberto is forecast to pass to the north of the UK, possibly on Tuesday, and it may be it will provide a glancing blow to the north of Scotland.

“There is still some energy within it but in reality, it should be no more than a wet and windy day.”
