Another storm is heading for the UK.
Storm Dennis, named by the Met Office, is expected bring heavy rain and widespread strong winds to the north and north-east at the weekend.
The impact is not supposed to be as strong as Storm Ciara but motorists and residents are still being urged to be aware.
Paul Gundersen, chief meteorologist at the Met Office said: “Another spell of very wet and windy weather is expected for Saturday. Although Storm Dennis is currently not expected to be as severe as Ciara, disruption is still likely. Our confidence in the forecast means we have been able to issue severe weather warnings well in advance, giving people time to prepare for potential impacts of the storm.”
Over the weekend wind gusts will widely exceed 50mph, even across some inland areas, with gusts of over 60mph possible over hills, coastal areas and exposed locations. While these winds have the potential to bring impacts they are not as strong as the gusts we saw last weekend with Storm Ciara, when a gust of 97mph was recorded on the Isle of Wight.
Heavy rain is also expected and with already saturated ground, there is a risk of further flooding over the weekend. Storm Dennis is expected to bring a range of impacts, including delays and cancellations to transport services, damage to power supplies and large coastal waves.
The yellow weather warning covers from 12pm on Sunday to 12pm on Monday.
