Severe Weather Warning For Cornwall

(Updated 2:46pm 26th June 2014)
Cornwall gets a severe weather warning.
A yellow weather warning for heavy rain has gone out for Friday and the weekend.
Forecasters say it could cause localised flooding.
They are warning events could be hit, as Cornwall's School Games have already been postponed.
The MET Office said: "Showers will become heavy and thundery across south-western parts of England and Wales early on Friday, moving northeast to affect other areas south of The Wash to North Wales during the day. Some reduction in activity is expected overnight, before further slow moving heavy and thundery downpours develop during Saturday, easing from the north later.
"The public should be aware that the resulting downpours may lead to localised flooding and potential disruption to transport and outdoor events."
The Chief Forecaster added: "A slack area of low pressure is expected to extend eastwards across southern UK on Friday and Saturday, bringing with it moist and deeply unstable air. Daytime heating will assist the development of heavy showers and thunderstorms. These are likely to become slow-moving and organised into bands giving some places 15-20 mm of rain in an hour or less and perhaps 40 mm in 2 or 3 hours. Hail and lightning will be additional hazards. As with the nature of showers, some places will escape the heavier ones."
