Storm Inès and Dennis: Further storms expected from Thursday onwards

Saindbags at the ready

The Met Office, which has amber rain warnings and yellow wind warnings in place over much of the country, said that due to the already saturated ground, there was an increased risk of flooding and associated damage. It will continue to push rain-bearing weather fronts and strong winds across the UK.

"There is a possibility that there will be wind warnings and rainfall warnings for periods over the weekend", she said.

A Met Office spokeswoman said: "Spells of heavy and prolonged rain are expected to affect southern Scotland during Saturday, particularly through the afternoon. There will be widespread showers through the night", according to Met Éireann.

Winds are not likely to be as severe across the Anglia region although gusts are likely to be 50-55mph quite widely.

He said: "With the forecast for heavy rain and strong winds again this weekend, we have extra equipment to deal with flooding, tree crews and emergency gangs ready to keep Hampshire's roads clear of surface water and fallen trees". It's going to bring with it severe gales and stormy conditions eastwards.


The trail of destruction left by Storm Ciara, which hit the United Kingdom over the weekend of February 8 and 9, is expected to cost up to £200m in insurance claims.

"It is a huge storm at that stage but it will have filled in by the time it gets to us and it's looking like around 950mb so we won't see such low pressure".

Only days after Storm Ciara, more rough weather is heading our way.

Ms Watters advised the public to keep an eye on any weather warnings and avoid the sea, where waves will be around 10 metres high.
