Leon Brown, head of meteorological operations at The Weather Channel, owned by The Weather Company, said: "Maria looks like being caught in the jet stream and swinging towards the United Kingdom as a deep depression". Maria is now sitting to the east of the Bahamas, with a slow north northwest movement. A widespread destructive hurricane is very unlikely in that region, but there could be some travel issues and coastal evacuations, and there nearly definitely will be problems with large waves and rip currents on the beaches.
