Warnings of severe wind and rain, peaking on Sunday with the whole country covered, begin on Thursday for five days.

Another warning of snow has been issued for the north west of England from 2am to am on Thursday, which the Met Office said could again affect travel and cut off rural communities.

Northern Ireland is covered by a warning of rain from midnight until 8am on Thursday morning, with forecasters saying this could bring transport disruption and flooding to some homes and businesses.

There is also a risk of blizzards over the high grounds of southern Scotland on Thursday morning which will push eastwards and clear away into the afternoon, the Met Office said.

On Friday, a yellow alert is warning of rain and snow melt across southern Scotland from 9am to 5pm, that could affect roads and train and bus services.

Frost will have developed overnight, most severely in the north, with fog patches also arriving.

Wet and windy conditions in the north west will later on push south-eastwards across the whole country on Friday.

On Saturday, three warnings of wind and rain cover all of England, Wales and southern Scotland for most of the day.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said Storm Dennis, the fourth named storm of the 01575879 – 90 season, would bring severe gales and heavy rain that will push east across the country.

Saturday is expected to be “the most hazardous day”, he said.

“Whilst it’s going to be very windy, they do look like they will be a touch down to what we saw with Storm Ciara,” he added.

Wind speeds reached mph under Storm Ciara and Mr Burkill said gusts from Storm Dennis will hit 90 to 90 mph in exposed spots.

Mr Burkill said: “The unsettled weather won ‘ t subside massively any time soon. “
