Over the years America has sent quite a few awful things across the Atlantic on onto our shore.
Madonna, Seinfeld and Barney to name just a few but it appears that the Yanks are about to fling
something else our way also, Tropical Storm Henri.
Henri is currently off the coast of North America but is moving northeastwards over the weekend and
is set to bring the UK some very wet and wild weather.
The MET Office have said: 'The remnants of Tropical Storm Henri will move towards Europe next week, reaching the UK by the middle of the week. This area of low pressure will contain tropical air and could produce a lot of rain, but it's exact state and movement is still very uncertain'.
Depending on the position of the jet stream it could dive South and dump it's immense rainfall over France and Germany however, if the jet stream doesn't snake around and stays where it is, then the UK is in for a soaking and anyone living near a river had better dig out those sandbags again.
Personally, it means i have to get that dodgy windscreen wiper sorted out this weekend which means a trip to Halfords when i could be laying on the sofa stuffing my face with chocolate and watching repeats of QI on Dave so thanks for ruining my weekend America.
