Burnham-On-Sea to see wet and windy conditions from former Hurricane Lorenzo

Burnham could see winds gusting up to 55mph on Friday morning, accompanied by showers of heavy rain, says the Met Office.

Lorenzo was a Category 2 hurricane, with winds of 140mph, when it passed the Azores earlier this week. It has since weakened into a deep low pressure system as it follows a north-easterly track towards the UK and Ireland.

Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office, Dan Suri, said: “The remnants of Lorenzo will bring a spell of wet and very windy weather to western parts.”

Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Tony Wardle said: “The remnants of ex-Hurricane Lorenzo will gradually pull away from the UK later on Friday, though it’ll remain unsettled with further spells of wet and windy weather as we head through the weekend.”
