City council crews on standby ahead of Storm Dennis

Storm Inès and Dennis: Further storms expected from Thursday onwards

Storm Inès and Dennis: Further storms expected from Thursday onwards

The Met Office warned: "Storm Dennis has the potential to bring very strong winds and transport disruption during Sunday and Monday morning".

Heavy, thundery rain is expected to plague Galway this weekend, with some flooding expected due to its severity.

The Follow the Dog and Monkey mountain biking trails were damaged in the wake of Storm Ciara and closed on Monday while the fallen trees and debris are cleared.

Dennis is the second named storm to hit Galway this week, and the fourth of the season so far before we're even out of February.

He said the snow which fell in parts of England following Storm Ciara is likely to melt as the rain arrives on Saturday.

"We'll get the trails open again as soon as possible".

But experts have warned Storm Dennis could cause more flooding damage, because of the heavy rain falling on parts of the United Kingdom still recovering from Ciara.

It said Network Rail may need to put speed restrictions in place to keep passengers safe. This rain is expected to fall across areas already wet from recent rainfall.

At least 800 homes in the north of England and many other areas are at risk of being flooded over the weekend as Storm Dennis unleashes heavy rainfall.

Curtin said about a quarter of the agency's 400 river gauges - used to measure water levels - have broken their highest-ever record in the past 10 years.

An amber warning is also in place for most of southern England from 00:15 until 18:00 on Sunday.

Issued by Met Éireann on Friday morning, the warning concerns the entire country, forecasting spells of heavy, locally thundery rain on Saturday that will lead to some flooding.

Meanwhile, Met Éireann also issued a weather advisory for Ireland ahead of Storm Dennis which is expected to bring flooding and gusty winds that could possibly cause disruption.
