ANOTHER weather warning has been issued for Dorset with heavy rain and high winds expected tomorrow.

The MET Office has issued a yellow weather alert for the South West for tomorrow until early Saturday morning.

Forecasters say the heavy rain will be followed by strong to gale force winds.

It comes following weeks of high winds and torrential rain including storms which battered the Jurassic coastline.

Motorists are being urged to take care on the roads with more flooding expected due to the already saturated ground.

A spokesman for the MET Office said: “Another very deep area of low pressure will spread heavy rain and strong to gale force winds eastwards across the UK during Friday, before the associated frontal systems clear the southeast of England during the early hours of Saturday.

“Following recent wet weather, the areas highlighted have saturated ground and are particularly sensitive to further heavy rain.”
