More weather warnings in place ahead of the weekend

The fourth named storm of the season, Dennis, is set to bring stormy conditions across the UK

The UK's week of miserable weather looks set to continue as it prepares to be struck by a country-wide storm for the second weekend in a row.

A host of yellow weather warnings have been issued by the Met Office from today until Monday, which include the arrival of Storm Dennis this weekend.

 

 

On Friday, a yellow alert is warning of rain and snow melt across southern Scotland from 9am to 5pm, that could affect roads and train and bus services.

Frost will have developed overnight, most severely in the north, with fog patches also arriving.

Wet and windy conditions in the north west will later on push south-eastwards across the whole country on Friday.

On Saturday, three warnings of wind and rain cover all of England, Wales and southern Scotland for most of the day.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said Storm Dennis, the fourth named storm of the 2019-20 season, would bring severe gales and heavy rain that will push east across the country.

Saturday is expected to be "the most hazardous day", he said.
