Storm Dennis is expected to bring widespread heavy rain and strong winds across the UK at the weekend.

A statement said: “Storm Dennis is expected to bring a range of impacts, including delays and cancellations to transport services, damage to power supplies and large coastal waves.”

The Mirror says: “early indications suggest Dennis will be a 1,200 mile-wide tempest” and it will hit hardest in Wales and southwest England.

It is forecast to land on Friday or Saturday, bringing extreme winds and heavy rain. Currently, forecasts are showing wind gusts over the weekend passing 50mph quite widely. Over hills and on coastal areas, these could exceed 60mph.

Dennis is the fourth named storm to hit Britain this season and will be pulled in by a 250mph jet stream, according to the Met Office.

According to reports, there is a small chance of injuries and danger to life from flying debris and a slight chance of some damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs. There could be travel disruption and power cuts. There is also a small chance that injuries and danger to life could occur from large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties

CBBC Newsround explains that the Met Office decided to start giving storms names back in 2014, in the same way they do in America. It hopes that naming big storms will make people more aware of them and how dangerous they can be. The first windstorm to be named was Abigail on 10 November 2015.
