Weather warning as Storm Dennis set to hit the country




The Met Office has put out an advanced weather warning for the area in anticipation of Storm Dennis hitting the UK.

Bringing with it strong winds here on Saturday and Sunday, there may be some disruption to travel.

The Met Office said, after putting out a yellow wind warning for Diss and the surrounding area over the weekend, that roads, rail, air and ferries may be disrupted and there could be short term power loss in places.

Over the weekend wind gusts will widely exceed 50mph, even across some inland areas, with gusts of over 60mph possible over hills, coastal areas and exposed locations.

While these winds have the potential to impact the country, the Met Office also says that they are not as strong as the gusts seen weekend with Storm Ciara, when the strongest winds were recorded on the Isle of Wright, at 97mph.
