It was the year that Cornwall finally had a proper summer... but now our run of sun could be halted by thundery downpours.

The Met Office issued a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms across the Duchy and the rest of the south west on Friday 13th.

Although that warning has now moved west towards Devon there could still be heavy rain and thundery downpours.

But many places will stay dry and actually the current forecast for Cornwall looks like it will stay warm and sunny, hooray!

A Met Office spokesperson said: "Heavy showers, which will most likely become thundery in places, are expected to develop quite widely across parts of England and Wales later Friday morning and through the afternoon.
"Some of the showers are likely to become focussed into slow-moving bands, particularly over south west England, with some locations receiving around 20mm in an hour.

"As is the nature of showers however, many places within the warning area will miss them altogether, and have a dry day."
