Storm Dennis update: What to expect as strong winds set to hit West Norfolk




The Met Office has stated travel disruption is likely across parts of England this weekend as Storm Dennis is expected to bring gusts in excess of 50mph.

A yellow weather warning for wind has been issued for West Norfolk from 10am tomorrow (Saturday) until 12 noon on Sunday.

An amber warning for rain has been issued for the entire South West of the country over the weekend but West Norfolk is currently not included as part of that.

On the strong winds heading to the region, the weather service said some short-term loss of power and other services is possible.

The Met Office has also told people to expect some transport delays, and it's likely some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray.

Despite this, it is set to be a busy day for Lynn tomorrow with the Mart continuing into its second day and King's Lynn Town FC set to host Bradford Park Avenue in the National League North at The Walks.

There is currently no indication that either of these events will be cancelled by Storm Dennis.

Steve Ramsdale, chief meteorologist at the Met Office said: “Another spell of very wet and windy ​weather is expected for Saturday, although Storm Dennis is currently not expected to be as severe as Ciara disruption is still likely.

"Our confidence in the forecast means we have been able to issue severe weather warnings well in advance, giving people time to prepare for potential impacts of the storm.”

Scaffolding can be seen on the King's Lynn Winter Night Shelter and Mojito night bar on Broad Street after Storm Ciara had a destructive impact last weekend.
