If you are planning on travelling by train today then there is a good chance of being delayed.

That is because, as National Rail put it, "a band of adverse weather" will cause delays and cancellations across South Western Railway until the end of service today.

"From 5am gusts will start to build towards 50 mph, with speeds increasing to up to 60 mph in some areas," a statement on National Rail's website read.

"As a result, a 50 mph emergency speed restriction has been applied by Network Rail from 4am until 10am between Eastleigh to Weymouth and Salisbury to Pinhoe.

The strongest winds will be experienced between 6am and 9am." Because of this it said there will be flow-on effects throughout other services.

But it could get even worse.

"As the adverse weather passes it is possible that some trees and other debris may be blown onto the railway," the statement read.

"To ensure that any incidents can be dealt with effectively, specialist response teams will be placed on stand-by at key locations on the network.

"They will attend any fallen debris and work to remove it quickly."
