The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the south east of England, including north-east Hampshire


Thunderstorms, hail and heavy showers have been forecast for Hampshire on Monday (March 3) as a Met Office warning has been issued.

The yellow weather warning for rain started at 2am on Monday and is due to run for 16 hours until 6pm.

The Met Office's warning said: "Heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms with hail will affect southern parts of England and Wales during Sunday night and Monday.

"Some of the showers will become aligned into bands producing longer spells of rain."

Meanwhile the chief forecaster's assessment added: "Bands of heavy showers, some with hail and thunder will develop in the circulation of the low, leading to some locally large rainfall totals (20-30mm), whilst other places will see relatively small amounts of rain."

There are currently no warnings in place after Monday.

The Environment Agency also have two flood alerts in place in north east Hampshire. They are at:

  • River Blackwater
