Sunrise over Saddleworth
Saddleworth residents woke up to a spectacular dawn this morning, but The Met Office is forecasting Storm Dennis could do more damage this weekend.
Forecasters predict that Saturday, 15th February, is expected to be the most hazardous day, with yellow warnings for wind and rain covering large swathes of the country.
Residents in parts of Saddleworth saw flash flooding in places during Storm Ciara last weekend.
Met Office meteorologist Alex Burkill said: "Whilst it's going to be very windy, they do look like they will be a touch down to what we saw with Storm Ciara."
Dennis, is the fourth named storm of the year. It's going to bring with it severe gales and stormy conditions eastwards.
On Sunday, the yellow weather warning continues and rain hangs over much of the North West, Wales, the South West, London and the South East.
