Weather warning issued as Tayside and Fife prepares to be battered by Storm Dennis

A weather warning has been issued for Tayside and Fife as the region prepares to be battered by Storm Dennis.

Snow and ice are expected to cause “blizzard conditions” across much of Scotland on Wednesday ahead of the arrival of the weather front at the weekend.

Storm Dennis could bring “very strong winds”, which could reach 70mph, to the local area from Sunday.

On Wednesday morning the Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for wind for Tayside and Fife, effective from noon on Sunday until the same time on Monday.

The forecaster has warned of travel disruption including road and bridge closures. Coastal areas are expected to be battered by large waves, while there may also be power cuts and damage to buildings.

The Met Office warning states: “Potential for very strong winds to develop across the region in association with Storm Dennis.

“The location and strength of the strongest winds is uncertain at this stage, but there is a small chance that winds will gust up to 70 mph for a time.

“More typically winds will gusts to 50mph at times. The strongest winds could also coincide with the Monday morning peak travel period.”

The fourth named storm of the 2019-20 season, Dennis, is set to bring a second consecutive weekend of wet and windy weather after Ciara struck the UK with winds of up to 97mph last weekend.

Last weekend’s conditions led to chaos on local roads. Part of a building in Perth collapsed into The Venue, forcing its evacuation.
