HEAVY showers are expected to cause disruption in parts of the south, including the Isle of Wight, the Met Office has warned.

*The yellow 'be aware' warning has been extended this morning and is now in effect from 9pm tonight (Monday) to 11.45pm tomorrow (Tuesday). It was previously in force fom 1am to 11pm on Tuesday.

A flood warning issued by the Environment Agency yesterday (Sunday) for some Eastern Yar areas is due to remain in force until noon today.

The Met Office said tomorrow's rain could cause disruption in areas where ground was already saturated.

The chief forecaster said: "A very unsettled start to the week is expected as an area of low pressure moves slowly southwards across Britain to most likely be centred near or over northwestern France by late Wednesday.

"Heavy showers forming over the English Channel on the southern flank of this area of low pressure will be driven into southern and southeastern England by brisk onshore winds on Monday and, more especially, on Tuesday."
