TEMPERATURES are set to soar this weekend meaning thousands across Hampshire will be heading outside.

However, as people head to the beach and their favourite outdoor spaces, traffic is already forming.

Queues have been building on the westbound M27 from J2 near Romsey to J1 at Cadnam.

Despite no recorded breakdowns or incidents in the area, motorists are being warned to factor in an extra ten minutes to their travel time.

Similarly, as holidaymakers head to the cost, traffic is building on the southbound M3.

Motorway cameras show queues forming at J1 near Winchester.

Meanwhile, an Echo reader, posting on social media has said that traffic is "building up nicely, heading to the coast" on the A31.
