THE Dorset Plane Pull has been cancelled due to heavy rain and strong winds forecast for Bank Holiday Monday.

The charity event was due to take place at Bournemouth Airport tomorrow.

A spokesperson added: "Following the weather warnings issued for Bournemouth and the safety concerns created by this, the organisers of the Dorset Plane Pull have had to postpone the event from this August Bank Holiday Monday.

"We regret having to take this decision but hope that our sponsors, supporters, charities their teams and the public will all be able to support the events new date of Saturday 13 September 2014."

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for Bank Holiday Monday earlier today.

A spokesperson said: Heavy rain will spread from the southwest on Bank Holiday Monday.

“The public should be aware that there may be some impacts to holiday traffic and outdoor activities.”

The chief forecaster added: “A complex area of low pressure will bring an unpleasant day's weather to much of England and Wales on Monday.

“Rainfall amounts are likely to exceed 15 mm quite widely, while a few places could see more than 30 mm.

“There will be a lot of surface water and spray on roads, and winds will be locally strong and gusty, for instance over parts of NW England.”

Oh good, it must be a few days since we had out last 'yellow weather warning', which of course like most of them turned out to be completely wrong. Keep it up Met Office we all like a laugh!

All those thumbs down and yet nobody else at all (at this time anyway) bothers commenting.

Unlike the weather that is something entirely predictable when any post on this forum is remotely critical of the Met Office. So 'yellow alert' for persistent thumbs down it is!

Most annoying to have a wet Bank Holiday as I wanted to get outside and water the garden.

This just shows what a bunch of robotic zombies some people have become, an event which should raise money for charity has now been cancelled because the met office choose to announce a yellow alert, if the bad weather doesn't arrive this event will have been cancelled for nothing, on top of that many people also will stay at home.
The met office should think of the consequences before dishing out any alert. this is yet another yellow alert of many that have failed to be correct, the met office should be closed down and consigned to the scrap heap where it belongs.
