HEAVY rain across the New Forest and Christchurch from tomorrow (Thursday) could bring disruption to the roads, the Met Office is warning.
It has issued a yellow weather alert for rain across the south of England from 2am, which is expected to last until 6am on Friday.
Spray and flooding on roads could make journey times longer, with bus and train services also likely to be affected.
The organisation says flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible.
“Whilst a drier interlude is likely for a time during the middle part of Thursday, many places in the warning area will see 15-25 mm of rain accumulate during this period”, the warning states.
“However, some higher ground areas of southern England and south Wales could see as much as 35-45 mm of rain.”
