Well, that's the end of the summer then.

Cornwall has been battered by winds of up to 65mph and torrential rain.

The Met Office has a yellow weather warning out for the first big storm of the season lasting until midday on Monday.

The storms have brought down branches on back roads and forecasters warn there is more on the way.

A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "Strong winds, accompanied by heavy rain, will move eastwards across the UK on Monday. Gales or even severe gales are likely around exposed coasts and high ground in the west and north on Monday morning.

"The public should be aware of the potential for travel disruption from the strong winds as well as standing water on the roads and reduced visibility from spray and driving rain.

"Gusts of 50-60 mph are also expected in the southwest of England. As the system moves eastwards across the UK on Monday the winds will ease away. Given the very strong winds, relatively early seasonal occurrence and their coincidence with Monday's rush hour some disruption to travel is likely."

The rest of the week in Cornwall is looking breezy, with a mix of sunshine and heavy showers.

Some of those could be heavy.
