UK prepares for Storm Dennis

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

As the UK has hardly recovered from Storm Ciara and the country is preparing for Storm Dennis.

“Blizzard conditions” are possible over Cumbria, Northumberland and large parts of Scotland, the Met Office has warned, as snow showers and strong winds combine.

There is a yellow weather warning in place for those areas, where up to 10cm (4in) of snow could fall in higher parts.

Northern Ireland could see further snow showers, forecasters said.

Once the freeze is out of the way, the UK is set to be hit by high winds and heavy rain for a second successive weekend as Storm Dennis arrives.

Gusts of up to 50mph (80kmh), are possible, with more than 60mph (96kmh) possible over hills, coastal areas and exposed locations.

It will not touch the 97mph (156kmh) winds of Storm Ciara, but further flooding is possible, with 43 warnings still in place in England, six in Scotland and one in Wales following recent heavy rainfall.
