The Met Office have issued a yellow weather warning for heavy rain across Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset today.
A spokesperson said: "The public should be aware that this may cause some localised flooding.
"Slow-moving frontal systems, containing some very mild and moist air, look like bringing 20 to 30 mm of rain quite widely but perhaps nearer 50 mm in a few locations."
