Hold on to your hats - rain and winds and possibly even snow will be hitting the county tonight. 

A yellow weather warning has been issued to parts of Dorset from midnight tonight as heavy rain and very strong winds are expected.

The warning covers most of north and west Dorset from 12:05am and 10am on Tuesday morning.

The Met Office has said delays to road, rail and ferry transport are likely, including for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges.

They added spray and some flooding on roads are also likely to increase journey times.

The Met Office's chief forecaster's said: "A band of heavy rain, along with the possibility of hail and some hill snow, will move eastwards across Wales and southwest England early on Tuesday morning.

"Twenty millimetres of rain is possible within two to three hours in some places, sufficient to cause some flooding of roads. It will also be very windy, with the southerly wind expected to gust 50-60mph widely and as high as 65-70 mph along some exposed coasts and over high ground.

"After a brief lull in winds, strong northerlies will follow with 55-65 mph possible across northwest Wales."
