Snow is expected across most of Dorset tomorrow morning.

The Met Office has also issued an ice warning for parts of the county as temperatures fall again. 

It says "Wintry showers and strong winds will continue in many areas overnight, although some clearer spells will develop in the south and east. Surfaces will remain wet from earlier showers and from continued showers of rain, sleet and snow, allowing ice to form.

"The public should be aware of the risk of icy stretches on roads on pavements."

In Bournemouth, sleet and snow is forecast to start about 4am, turning to snow at about 8am, before dying off at 10am.

In Ringwood, Ferndown and Wimborne Minster, it's expected to snow from 6am to 10am, with a burst of hail at lunchtime.

In Lytchett Matravers light snow is expected from 3am to 10am.

 Only Poole is forecast nothing but rain.
