The next storm will be named after a girls name, beginning with the letter E.

I reckon they'll name it "Else" after the silly moo.

yes but this storm is drawing up warm air, warmer air contains more rain and there will be a real issue with orographic rainfall

well at least the rain is good for any ''drought complaints'' last 2 hot and dry summers i mean


apparently because of this storm drawing up warm air, some snow is also going to melt in the alps (French part, Swiss part) so those who want to go skiing need to go higher in the mountains otherwise you're in a wet snow

The UK is braced for more disruption, with another storm forecast for the second weekend
running. Storm Dennis "is likely to bring very heavy rain, flooding and disruption" in some areas,
the Met Office has said. Amber warnings for rain and yellow warnings for wind are in place for most
of the country from Saturday afternoon and into Sunday evening.

It comes after Storm Ciara left hundreds of homes flooded and more than 500,000 without power.
The worst hit areas could see between 120-140mm of rainfall and gusts of up to 80mph over the
weekend, the Met Office said. The predictions are not as severe as last weekend when Ciara brought as much as
184mm of rain and gusts reaching 97mph. But the Met Office said the already saturated ground could

increase the risk of flooding.

Chief meteorologist Steve Willington said: "With Storm Dennis bringing further heavy and persistent
rain over the weekend, there is a risk of significant impacts from flooding, including damage to property
and a danger to life from fast-flowing floodwater."

At 15;00 on Friday there were 15 flood warnings and 114 flood alerts in place across Britain.
UK power operators say they have employed extra engineers and call centre staff to respond
to any possible impact of the storm, after widespread power cuts last weekend.


The Met Office has amber warnings for rain in pockets of northern and south-west England, and
Wales from 12:00 GMT on Saturday until 15:00 on Sunday. An amber warning is also in place for
most of southern England from 00:15 until 18:00 on Sunday. Flooding, power cuts and trave
l disruption are predicted in these areas.

Yellow warnings for strong winds and heavy rain also cover all of England, Wales and southern
Scotland between 09:00 GMT and midday on Saturday. Further yellow warnings for wind are in

place for northern parts of the UK from midday on Sunday until midday on Monday -
potentially bringing travel disruption to commuters.

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. That is the assessment of the Environment Agency
which is warning that persistent intense rain will fall on ground already saturated.Snow now
lying on higher ground will be melted and will add to the threat.

The agency's head of flood defence, John Curtin, told a media briefing that 800 homes were flooded
last weekend during Storm Ciara and that "my feeling is that this will be at least as bad, probably
more so". Over the course of the winter so far, 7% of 400 river gauges have set new records for
water height. Mr Curtin said temporary flood defences were being deployed in many places but
added it was too early to tell exactly where the most intense rain would fall.

He said he was most concerned about Lancashire, Yorkshire and Cumbria but parts of Wales,
south-west England, the Midlands and south-east England could also be at risk. BBC Weather
forecaster Phil Avery warned that the "real issue about Storm Dennis is going to be the amount of rainfall".
He warned that some areas could see two days of persistent rainfall, in which a month of rain could fall over 48 hours.

Network Rail passenger director Jake Kelly said: "Storm Ciara dumped a month-and-a-half of rain
on us last weekend, leaving ground waterlogged and rivers swollen. "With Storm Dennis set to
bring more high winds and further rainfall this Saturday and Sunday, we're preparing for more of the same."

The Environment Agency said preparations were under way to operate flood defences, flood
storage reservoirs and temporary barriers to protect communities. This includes the Foss
Barrier in York, the Thames Barrier in London and another in Bewdley, Worcestershire, on
the River Severn. Flood duty manager Caroline Douglass said: "Remember to never driv
e or walk through floodwater, just 30cm of flowing water is enough to move your car - it's not worth the risk."

The Energy Networks Association - which represents operators - said the UK's networks were
"very resilient and built to withstand strong winds and heavy rain" but added that flying debris
"can pose a risk to infrastructure" during a storm.

I remember the days before they started making it dramatic and naming the storms. In those days, it was called "windy"
