Early on Saturday morning, the jet stream will be "baring down" on the United Kingdom, with strong winds hitting parts of the Britain in the afternoon, explains the Met Office.

For Friday, we've got wet and windy weather coming in from the west with gusts in the western isles of up to 70mph, to give you an idea.

The warning is in place until midnight, with more heavy rain forecast on Sunday.

"So, another hazard to watch out for".

The unsettled weather will continue into next week with Monday and Tuesday remaining wet and windy.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said Storm Dennis, the fourth named storm of the 2019-20 season, would bring severe gales and heavy rain that will push east across the country.

Downpours run the risk of causing further flooding, with 43 warnings still in place in England, six in Scotland and one in Wales after Storm Ciara.

"Like Ciara, this storm is being pulled in by the jet stream which is amplifying and passing over Britain at around 250mph".

The UK are set for another wet and windy weekend as we say goodbye to Storm Ciara and hello to Storm Dennis.

Storm Dennis is expected to bring transport and power disruptions, as well as unsafe conditions around the coast due to waves. "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 could be further status orange weather warnings on the way as Storm Dennis heads towards Ireland.

With already saturated ground, there is a risk of further flooding over the weekend with possible heavy rainfall, said the Met office.

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.

They warned some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities are likely to be affected by spray and/or large waves, that there was a "slight chance" of power cuts and damage to buildings.
