The Kildare Weather page on Facebook is predicting a very unsettled weekend ahead as very strong winds associated with Storm Dennis look to affect Ireland.

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

The Advisory covers from 3am on Saturday until 12pm on Monday.

A yellow warning is the lowest level, rising in severity through amber to red for the most severe weather.

Dennis is not expected to be as severe as Storm Ciara, which less than a week ago wreaked havoc across the country bringing flooding, power outages and severe delays.

Higher locations could see as much as 50mm to 80mm over the course of the weekend, potentially rising to 140mm in some parts. "Some snow accumulations possible before morning, mainly across the north and on higher ground elsewhere".

A yellow weather warning for wind is in place for most of the United Kingdom this Saturday, with forecasters predicting gusts of up to 52mph across East Anglia.

It warned of likely power cuts and said cancellations to public transport and hard driving conditions were likely.
