Storm Alert Dennis is gonna be a menace this weekend for Kildare

A yellow weather warning for wind is in place for most of the United Kingdom this Saturday, with forecasters predicting gusts of up to 52mph across East Anglia.

The fourth named storm of the 2019-20 season, Dennis, is set to bring a second consecutive weekend of wet and windy weather after Ciara struck the United Kingdom with winds of up to 97mph.

Storm Inès will arrive on Thursday, followed by Storm Dennis over the weekend.

It is expected to bring an onslaught of rainfall and gales pushing eastwards across Britain.

Tomorrow, a warning is in place for heavy downpours across a huge swathe of southern Scotland, including Dumfries, Kelso and Peebles.

Naturally, delays and cancellations on public transport are also to be expected over the weekend.

An amber weather warning for rain covering parts of south and mid Wales is in place for 24 hours from 15:00 GMT on Saturday.

Storm Dennis was named by the United Kingdom's Met Office on Tuesday and is expected to affect parts of Ireland on Saturday and Sunday.
