(Updated 5:49am 22nd October 2013)
Cornwall's wild weather could last till the end of the week.
A yellow weather warning is out till Tuesday afternoon - for more wind and rain.
But then there is another for Thursday and Friday.
The Met Office says up to six centimetres means there is the risk of flooding.
A spokesperson said: "Further heavy rain will affect much of South West England and South Wales on Tuesday, clearing during the afternoon.
"The public should be aware of the risk of disruption due to localised flooding.
"Periods of heavy rain will continue to affect many south western parts of the UK during Tuesday, bringing a risk of minor disruption due to river and surface water flooding. Total rainfall during Monday and Tuesday will exceed 60mm in the wettest spots, mostly over higher ground, with many places seeing 20 to 30 mm.
"The more persistent rain will clear to showery conditions during Tuesday afternoon, though there is uncertainty over precise timings of this clearance.
"Bands of persistent and occasionally heavy rain are expected to spread northeastwards to parts of South West England and Wales later on Thursday and extend to other parts of England and Wales overnight and into Friday.
"Following recent wet weather this additional rainfall brings a continuing risk of minor disruption due to river and surface water flooding.
"Two day totals in the wetter areas especially hillier locations may reach 40mm and locally 60mm. Clearer but still showery weather should spread to at least southern areas during Friday."

Officers from Cornwall Council’s Highways, Environment, Fire and Rescue and Emergency Management services say they will be monitoring the situation closely and are on standby to deal with any problems.
Agencies are alo asking people to follow the advice on dealing with the potential heavy rainfall, and warn people not to drive through any flood water.
A statement from County Hall said: "During the floods which took place last year a number of householders reported difficulties in obtaining sandbags when the heavy rain affected their local area.
"As neither the Council nor the Environment Agency has a statutory duty to provide sandbags, anyone whose property is prone to flooding should ensure they have a supply of sandbags ready to protect their home or business should they need to.
"Local communities are also encouraged to check with vulnerable neighbours in case they need help with obtaining flood protection materials.
"Sandbags can be obtained from builders merchants, DIY and hardware stores. Anyone who is unsure if their property is at risk can check on the environment agency website www.environment-agency.gov.uk or call the floodline on 0845 988 1188.
