Met Office issues yellow warning for rain for Southampton

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain across Southampton, Hampshire and the South West. 

The warning lasts from 6pm today until 3am on Tuesday. 

The rain is expected to become persistent and heavy this evening. 

The Met Office has said that bus and train services will probably be affected with longer journey times. 

Spray and flooding on roads is also likely with some interruption to power supplies and other services. 

In a post on its website, the Met Office added: “After a generally cloudy day with showers, more persistent rain will push north this evening and overnight.

“Rain will be persistent and heavy at times, particularly so for hills, moors and headlands exposed to brisk winds.

“Most of the warning area will see 20-40 mm of rain, with as much as 60-70 mm possible for some areas, for example Dartmoor and Exmoor.

“Rain should ease from the south during the night, clearing to scattered showers by morning.”
