On Sunday it will turn cold with daytime maximum temperatures of 4 or 5 degrees with showers turning wintry along western coastal areas, further east will stay mostly dry.

Friday's weather forecast is somewhat calmer, before high winds once more on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, reaching up to 85 km/h.

Winds are not likely to be as severe across the Anglia region although gusts are likely to be 50-55mph quite widely.

For most of Saturday, warnings of wind and rain are in place across Wales, southern Scotland and the whole of England.

"This rain is expected to fall across areas already wet from recent rainfall".

The Brighton forecast now says to expect gusts of at least 60mph from 9pm on Saturday night until Sunday morning.

Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure park in Lenwade will close out of concerns "for the safety of visitors and crew" at the weekend (February 15-16) as the storm is set to bring gusts of 60mph-70mph and heavy rain.

A series of weather warnings covering the next five days have been issued by the Met Office as Storm Dennis arrives.

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

Dennis is the fourth named storm of 2020, following closely on from Ciara.

"The strong winds will be accompanied by heavy rain at times, leading to particularly poor driving conditions".
