SUMMER could be coming back if a tropical hurricane continues on its path toward the South West.

The Bahamas are currently being battered by the storm but Hurricane Cristobal is expected to cross the Atlantic at the end of the week.

Meteorologists are expecting good weather as the hurricane passes by the UK.

Rain is also set to clear away as the storm will draw high pressure from the continent, say weather experts.

The south coast could be in line for the best of the weather.

Dan Williams, at the Exeter-based Met Office, said: “We might see a bit of wind and rain in the northwest from the remnants of Cristobal on Sunday and it might get a bit breezy.

“But for many places, though, Cristobal could bring some decent weather at the weekend by dragging high pressure towards the UK.”

Initially it could bring more unsettled weather and, despite temperatures of up to 22 Celsius in the Westcountry by Thursday, lead to more wind and rain in some areas.

But Mr Williams added: “Through the week it is a case of sunny spells and showers with a separate low pressure system heading over the UK on Friday bringing some wind to most of the country.”
