Flood Alerts Issued for Cornwall
7:06am 11th November 2013
Cornwall is back on weather watch after being battered by torrential rain on Sunday night.
The Met Office has got a yellow warning out for the drive to work on Monday.
The Environment Agency has put out flood alerts on the Upper and Middle Tamar and rivers in north and west Cornwall.
A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Rain spreading eastwards across the UK during Sunday night will become persistent and locally heavy in some areas during Monday before clearing later in the day.
"The public should be aware of the potential for localised flooding across Devon and Cornwall on Monday.
"An Atlantic frontal system will push east across the UK on Sunday night and during Monday, bringing widespread rain which should become lighter and patchier later on Monday morning.
"Highest rainfall accumulations are likely to be in western parts, and current saturated ground conditions and high river levels in parts of Devon and Cornwall means that there is potential for some minor disruption due to river flooding here."
A spokesperson for the Environment Agency warned 25mm was expected to fall: "We therefore expect Flood Alert levels to be reached in the early hours of Monday."7:06am 11th November 2013
