Cornwall has been warned to expect wet weather until Friday.

A series of yellow weather warnings now covers the Duchy until the end of the working week.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said the first tranche of bad weather has already arrived and will last until early on Wednesday morning: "The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, perhaps exacerbated by fallen leaves blocking drainage courses.

"The strong southerly winds, reaching gale force in places, will enhance rainfall over south-facing slopes and hills, where totals of more than 60mm in 36 hours are likely. 20-40 mm will fall more widely. The rainfall is likely to cause some minor flooding from either surface water or from rivers."

That is followed by another storm front from Thursday night into Friday evening - but forecasters admit it is more difficult to predict: "A developing frontal system is expected to bring another period of persistent, and at times heavy, rain to parts of the UK later on Thursday and into Friday. Rain is likely to be accompanied by strong and gusty winds.

"A developing frontal system is expected to push north, then east across many parts of the UK during Thursday and into Friday. Rain is expected to become persistent and heavy at times, particularly over south-facing hills. Many places may well see 20-30 mm during the day, with as much as 50-70 mm over higher ground. With this bout of heavy rain coming after what is expected to be a wet week, localised flooding is a possibility either from surface water or from some rivers.

"There is still a large degree of uncertainty regarding the track and timing of this system, so this warning will be updated in the coming days to hone the areas most at risk from significant precipitation totals."
