'Too Early' To Tell Whether Cornwall Faces Nightmare Before Christmas

Forecasters say it is too soon to tell whether Cornwall's set for a Christmas of storms.

It is claimed Britain is set to be lashed by up to 90mph an hour winds and heavy rain.

But the Met Office says - at the moment - the worst looks like it is heading for Scotland.

Spokesperson Laura Young said: "It's far, far too early to tell. The science simply doesn't exist at the moment to forecast two weeks into the future with any sort of detail or accuracy.

"We know where the depressions are going to be over the next few days but, in a week's time, you can't pinpoint where the pressure's suddenly going to fall. Therefore we don't know which areas are going to experience the strongest winds and the heaviest rain."

Last year Cornwall faced flooding in the run up to Christmas - with many families losing presents as water swept in.

Hundreds of people in Lostwithiel were urged to leave their homes amid fears flood defences could fail.

The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings for gusts of up to 80mph in Scotland this weekend but said that they were not currently predicting anything worse than typical winter weather.
