A WEATHER warning for wind has been issued by the Met Office this morning.

A yellow weather warning - meaning be aware - is in force across the south of Hampshire until 10am this morning.

Strong gusts and heavy rain are forecast through the morning and residents are warned to be careful on roads.

The Met Office is warning that "some short term loss of power and other services is possible, as well as some delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges."

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "A spell of strong winds is expected during the early to mid-morning as potent, heavy showers with a chance of hail and thunder spread eastwards across southern England.

"Gusts of 45 to 50 mph are likely quite widely in and near these showers, with 60 mph gusts in places and close to 70 mph at times in the most exposed coastal locations.

"Wind will go on to slowly ease through the course of this afternoon."
