Cornwall is back on storm watch.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for wind because of a deep low pressure system heading for the UK.

It is out from 00.10am on Friday through until midday.

The worst of the so-called "weather bomb" set to batter Britain is expected to miss the Duchy but gales of up to 70mph, huge waves and heavy downpours are still being predicted.

We are also being told to prepare for disruption to travel and power supplies too.

Aidan McGivern is a forecaster from the Met Office. He said: "Conditions around coastal areas will be particularly hazardous during Friday morning, because of the gale force winds, the strong gusts, and the over topping waves, so it is advisable to take care if you are near coastal areas.

"There are no signs of anything in terms of last year's flooding at the moment, the rainfall this December so far hasn't been as extreme as last year, the wind is the main concern this week and as we go through the next few weeks it is likely to come down a little bit."
