Storm Dennis

Just a week before, Storm Ciara had unleashed fury over many parts of the United Kingdom and resulted in heavy rains, snow and windy conditions. Now, there is another storm coming up called Storm Dennis.

Dennis is shaping up in the Western Atlantic Ocean and is expected to only get stronger by tomorrow. There is another low pressure in the Atlantic which is expected to bring in snowfall and strong winds over Iceland today. Parts of Iceland could even see hurricane force winds.

Moreover, Dennis became a bomb cyclone after the central pressure of the storm dropped 46 mb in 24 hours from 996 mb to 950 mb, the drop being twice than what is needed for it to be a considered a Bomb Cyclone.

Dennis is expected to give heavy rains and strong winds over 90 mph in Ireland and the United Kingdom on Sunday. The grounds are already saturated, and more rains will bring in flooding over some parts of the nation.

Waves around 40-50 feet are expected west of British Isles as the storm moves through the region. Wind gusts will be seen over cities of Manchester, Dublin, London and Birmingham. Yellow wind warnings have been in place over many parts of the nation.
