It is feared Cornwall's super-summer could end with a spectacular storm

Forecasters warn the tail end of Hurricane Bertha could hit over the weekend.  

Right now she's north of the Bahamas.

You can track her journey via the US National Hurricane Centre here or via the UK Met Office here

Marco Patagna from the Met Office says it is still too early to tell much: "It could gather pace before it starts to track across the Atlantic and the remnants of that storm are likely to move towards the UK and possibly affect the UK later on this weekend Saturday night into Sunday.

"We could see gales in exposed areas. It's obviously quite a long way off at this stage, four or five days away, so things could change. Different models are providing different positions for the track of the low as it comes towards the UK. The Met Office is tracking it across the Southern UK while the American one is tracking it further north.

"It's nothing unprecedented at this stage. It looks as though we'll get some gales in exposed areas and some pretty heavy rain in places, But at this stage nothing much more than that. Obviously we need to fine tune things over the next few days."

In the meantime a yellow weather warning for heavy rain goes out across the Duchy. The Met Office said: "Heavy rain is expected to spread from the southwest on Tuesday evening, affecting many areas overnight before clearing early on Wednesday morning.

"The public should be aware of the potential for localised surface water flooding."

Its Chief Forecaster added: "A frontal system containing warm, humid air is expected to bring heavy rain to Cornwall and Devon later on Tuesday evening, before spreading to parts of South Wales, the West Country and central southern England overnight. 20-40 mm could fall in some areas within about 6 hours, leading to some surface water flooding.

"Computer models are still presenting us with varying outcomes, a few of the latest having lesser amounts in general - hence this warning may be updated later today."
