Weather Warning For Cornwall
6:44am 10th November 2014
A severe weather warning has been issued for Cornwall - as the latest winter storm bears down on the Duchy.
The Met Office says it will turn wet and windy on Monday, before the worst hits overnight and into Tuesday.
It has put out a yellow weather warning with up to 5cm of rain set to batter parts of Cornwall.
That could mean some localised flooding because of surface water and drains getting blocked by leaves.
The alert is for the whole of Cornwall, apart from a slim corridor of north Cornwall.
A spokesperson said: "Rain and strong winds will affect southwestern parts of Britain from later on Monday, with the rain becoming particularly heavy at times on Tuesday.
"The public should be aware of the risk of localised flooding, perhaps exacerbated by fallen leaves blocking drainage courses.
"An active frontal system associated with an Atlantic depression, will push in from the west later on Monday, and is then expected to become slow- moving as waves run northwards along it.
"The strong southerly winds, will enhance rainfall over south-facing slopes and hills, where totals of more than 50 mm in 24 hours are expected locally; 20 to 30 mm will fall more widely."6:44am 10th November 2014
