The UK's heatwave could be coming to an end, the Met Office have warned, after remnants of US tropical cyclone are predicted to carry over the Atlantic.

Storm Chris is currently gathering off the East coast of the US, with forecasters predicting its status could be upgraded to a hurricane by the end of the week.

Remnants of this could reach the jet stream and make their way over to the UK by the weekend, Met Office Meteorologist Aidan McGivern has warned.

Nicola Maxey, a Met Office spokesman, told the Telegraph that Storm Chris "will influence the weather but we cannot tell what that influence will be at the moment because it is still developing".

Forecasters say if Storm Chris reaches the UK, it will not be at hurricane strength.

Here's Aidan McGivern's verdict on Storm Chris hitting the UK

The UK, including Manchester, has been basking in glorious sunshine for the last month, with June the hottest on record.

Rain has been forecast for Manchester on Friday, with temperatures predicted to remain above 22C for the remainder of the week.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Friday will be warm again, though sunshine may be interspersed by heavy or thundery showers. Sunshine will be hazier over the weekend, but it will stay mainly dry and warm."
