UK braced for more storms this weekend

The first storm will move out of the region Friday after producing heavy rain
to parts of the UK and Ireland.

The second storm system will move through Saturday, bringing with it wind
gusts up to 121 kph (75 mph). The heaviest of the rain will be Saturday,
although there will be some persisting rainfall into Sunday.

These winds and heavy rainfall have the potential to down trees that are
already unstable in the saturated ground.

Flooding will also be a threat, as streams and rivers could spill over their
banks. Nearly all of the two islands will see a flooding threat although
eastern Ireland, Northern Ireland, North West England and northern Wales
will see the greatest risk for flooding.

These storms will only add problems for the both Ireland and the UK, as both
have seen above normal rainfall this month.
