Fresh Rain Warning for Cornwall

(Updated 7:18am 18th January 2014)
There is a yellow weather warning out for most of Cornwall.
Only the far west is not covered by the alert for up to 4cm of rain.
The Met Office is worried that could mean localised flooding - because the ground is still so wet from the recent storms.
A spokesperson said: "Rain, heavy and persistent in places, will continue to affect much of southwest England and south Wales, slowly clearing again from the west this afternoon. Given continued saturated ground conditions, the public should be aware of the likelihood of localised flooding.
"A complex set of frontal systems has spread rain into the southwest of Britain overnight. The bands of rain will become heavy in places, and may become slow moving at times to give some persistent rain. 20 mm of rain could fall over a fairly wide area, while a few locations could see 30-40 mm, with over 10 mm in an hour possible.
"These accumulations may result in some locally significant flooding impacts, though there remains uncertainty in the locations likely to be worst affected. Clearer conditions should follow the rain from the west during the afternoon."
A flood alert has been issued for the Upper Tamar. You can find the latest information here.7:18am 18th January 2014
