    However, other forecasters are pointing to the opposite - just like our politics:
    The media are exceeding themselves again. No wonder journalists are so discredited. Here is the headline you linked to:

    KILLER Hurricane Dorian set to join forces with another churning tropical vortex before heading to Britain to unleash storm hell.

    The perfect storm is coming our way if you believe it.

    The problem with such sensationalist press weather items is that, just occasionally, they get it near enough right to trumpet that from the rooftops.

    Hurricanes taking the Dorian track do head for the U.K. but usually fizzle out in mid-Atlantic. They may merge with a low that formed near the eastern seaboard of N America and give that a boost. More often they come across as an area of very moist air. In both cases, the latent heat effect can give a lot of energy to the existing or a new Atlantic low. Something of that sort happened in October 1987 . It was NOT a hurricane but did have hurricane force winds.

    Rarely, a hurricane forms somewhere near the Azores. These may just about get to the U.K. but rarely. Ophelia in 2017 was one such.

    Or to put it another way, of the hundreds of Atlantic hurricanes headed our way over the last century that not a single one has remained a hurricane, let alone as a devastating storm by the time it got here, so the Express newspaper predictions were really ridiculous.
