Cornwall Gets A Yellow Weather Warning
2:35pm 18th July 2014
Cornwall is told to prepare for more torrential downpours and lightning.
It is after the skies lit up across the Duchy on Thursday night.
Now there is a yellow weather warning out from midnight on Friday.
And if that is not enough, scientists reckon the tropical conditions could bring swarms of flying ants.
Forecaster Marco Petagna said: "We're going to see some very heavy, intense thundery showers moving up from the south, up to an inch or so of rain could fall in just an hour or so, that is 25 millimetres, through the day tomorrow we could see two to three inches of rain and that could cause some flooding.
"We could well see frequent lightning, some large hail stones and some very intense rainfall in a very short space of time, things should improve a little bit as we go into the afternoon tomorrow, we could even see a bit of brightness for a while, before the showers get going again in the afternoon."2:35pm 18th July 2014
