Rain Warnings as Storm Dennis Approaches

West Wales facing another weekend of wild weather

Weather warnings are being issued for West Wales ahead of this weekend's arrival of Storm Dennis.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain across the region until 9pn Sunday.

Chris Pearce, Network Rail’s head of operations delivery for Wales and Borders and Martyn Brennan, Operations Director for Transport for Wales Rail, have issued the following advice:

“This Saturday will see Storm Dennis bringing winds of up to 60mph, extremely heavy rain and a potential flooding risk around our network.

“The safety of our customers and colleagues is our first priority and as a result there will be speed restrictions in place across our network, on Saturday, and some areas will see a reduced service running.

“We expect to see extremely heavy rainfall on areas already affected by Storm Ciara last week and are preparing extensively for this.

“We will be working closely together to keep our customers moving however, there are likely to be some short notice amendments on both Saturday and Sunday and we encourage all customers to check journey planning websites prior to travel.”

Dragons' home game against Italian side Benetton on Saturday (Feb 15) has been postponed because of the approaching storm.

The decision was made "in the interests of supporter and staff safety" because of "the extreme weather conditions forecast".
