The Met Office has issued an amber warning for parts of Scotland where severe flooding is likely causing 'danger to life'.

While the storm is now registering pressure of just 917mb - low enough to bring extreme weather conditions, - Ms Watters said that by the time it hits Ireland, it will have increased to around 950mb, which is still low enough for gale-force winds.

Before that, we have a new status yellow rainfall warning to contend with.

Dennis is not expected to be as severe as Storm Ciara, which less than a week ago wreaked havoc across the country bringing flooding, power outages and severe delays. Around 15-25 mm of rain will fall widely with 30-40 mm possible, this will combine with snow melt exacerbating the impacts.

"The effects of Storm Dennis will continue to generate strong to near gale southwest to west winds on Sunday".

"Parasite" makes Oscar history
She wasn't wrong. " Parasite " picked up four awards on Sunday night, including a history-making best picture win. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household.

"The location and strength of the strongest winds is uncertain at this stage, but there is a small chance that winds will gust up to 70 miles per hour for a time".

Attractions have been watching the forecasts with fears the inclement weather could force them to shut.

Network Rail warned journeys throughout the West Midlands faced disruption and urged people to check timetables.

"We're coming into a period of neap tides, so it's not like Storm Ciara where there were high tides but there could still be some flooding because river levels are elevated and there will be lots of rain".

"For those who are braving the storm, drivers should make sure they account for the conditions".
