“Storm Dennis is following a similar pattern to Storm Ciara with low pressure coming in from the North West, but we do not expect it to be as severe.However, we will see inland gusts of 57mph quite widely and further very heavy rain on saturated ground there could be issues with flooding.
“Like Ciara, this storm is being pulled in by the jet stream which is amplifying and passing over Britain at around 250mph.”The arrival of Storm Dennis means disruptions to transport services are expected.The Premier League fixture between Manchester City and West Ham has been rearranged.

Southampton ended up on the wrong end of a 4-0 defeat at Liverpool in their last league game, but they had played very well at Anfield. Burnley also deserved more from their home game against Arsenal. They drew 0-0 but had enough chances to win it,” said Lawrenson.
“Saints still have the worst home record in the Premier League this season, with 11 points from 12 games, but they have actually picked up a lot recently after taking only one point from their first six matches at St Mary’s.
“Plus Southampton striker Danny Ings is still in a purple patch, and you have to fancy him to score against the Clarets, who are one of his former teams.”So there are plenty of reasons to back Saints here, although I am slightly reluctant because of how well Burnley are playing. 2-0.”
Nicholas also feels the Saints, who were beaten 3-0 by Burnley on the opening day, will take the three points.”Southampton and Burnley have dug themselves out of a hole, Southampton impressing more so than Burnley,” said Nicholas.
“Southampton are still awkward at home, but they have got over this barrier. They played well at Tottenham in the FA Cup replay but are still suspect at home. Burnley, meanwhile, are a team that grind out results.
“I do not see too many goals, but Southampton will win and spring up towards the top half of the table, making them just about safe. 1-0.”The latest from the ClaretsYou can get all the latest news from Burnley FC by liking our dedicated Facebook page.

“Southampton have won 65 per cent of their points so far this season (20 of 31) on the road but I think they will keep all three points against Burnley, even though the Clarets won at Old Trafford in their last away league game,” said Owen on his Bet Victor Blog.
“The Saints played very well at Spurs in their fourth round FA Cup replay last time and matched Liverpool at Anfield for 45 minutes in their last away game. I expect to see opportunities at both ends but think Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side will keep the points.”
