Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: "Whilst it's going to be very windy, they do look like they will be a touch down to what we saw with Storm Ciara".

Storm Dennis is on the way.

Storm Dennis is unlikely to be as serious and disruptive as last weekend's Storm Ciara.

Storm Dennis follows Storm Ciara last weekend which blocked roads and railways with fallen trees and led to flooding in some parts, with big waves on the coast.

The Met Office has predicted 1,200-mile wide Storm Dennis will bring a month of rainfall in just 24 hours when it hits the United Kingdom tomorrow.

"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".

There is an increased risk of flooding, which may cause travel disruptions and create hard driving conditions.

Much of the country is set to be buffeted by gusts of around 50mph, although coastal regions may experience heavier winds.

The Met Office says that properties could be flooded, driving conditions could be hard, and there's the possibility of delays or cancellations to train and bus services.

The Environment Agency said preparations were under way to operate flood defences, flood storage reservoirs and temporary barriers to protect communities.

He said the snow which fell in parts of England following Storm Ciara is likely to melt as the rain arrives on Saturday.

Affecting all 26 counties in the republic, the national meteorological office warns that spells of heavy, locally thundery rain on Saturday will lead to some flooding. "Keep away from cliffs as cliff falls are more likely in these conditions".
