Storm Dennis has hit Leeds.

Rain is set to continue until around 10am, when it should ease off - until early evening.

A Met office yellow warning for wind remains in place until midday, while the rain warning remains in place until 9pm on Sunday.

It means some travel disruption and flooding is likely in some areas

Met Office Chief Meteorologist, Steve Willington, said: “Storm Dennis will bring another very unsettled spell of weather this weekend with a risk of flooding, particularly in parts of England and Wales and also southern Scotland, where snowmelt will add to the flood risk.

“Following Storm Ciara last weekend and further spells of rain this week, the ground is already saturated in places. 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.

“Our advice is to keep an eye on the latest weather forecast and weather warnings for your area and to follow the safety advice from officials.”
