More snow could fall in Dorset today and tomorrow after the Met Office upgraded it's weather warning from yellow to amber.

Coastal areas could escape the worst of the weather, but North and West Dorset is likely to suffer.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Outbreaks of sleet or snow will affect parts of southwest England during Tuesday, extending to other parts of southern England later.

"Where rain or sleet is currently falling, this is expected to turn increasingly to snow during this afternoon and evening, even at low levels.

"This could be locally heavy and fall in a short period of time, perhaps just a few hours."

The Met Office expects between 2-5cm of snow to fall in most places with 10cm likely on higher ground.
