Strong winds in association with Storm Dennis are expected on Saturday and Sunday across many parts of England and Wales.

"As temperatures rise, this coupled with melting snow has already prompted yellow warnings of flooding particularly for central and southern parts of Scotland".

A spokesman for Forestry England said: "Unfortunately our Follow the Dog and Monkey mountain biking trails have been damaged in the wake of Storm Ciara and are temporarily closed whilst we clear the fallen trees and debris".

"The strongest winds are likely to be on Saturday afternoon and evening, with a lull overnight, before increasing again during Sunday".

As reported by Sky News, Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said that while the next few days look set to be "very windy", conditions will be "a touch down" on what was seen during Storm Ciara.

A yellow warning is the lowest level, rising in severity through amber to red for the most severe weather.

The Environment Agency now has 125 flood alerts and 18 flood warning in force.

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. Although Storm Dennis is now not expected to be as severe as Ciara, disruption is still likely.

Met Eireann says Weather Warnings will be issued on Friday.
