ANOTHER wind warning goes out for Cornwall

Another wind warning has gone out for Cornwall.

The Met Office has issued a yellow alert for Saturday, from 4am through until 9pm.

Big waves and gusts of up to 70mph are forecast to hit the coast.

It comes just days after the Duchy was battered by Storm Gareth and 65mph gales.



What to expect?

  • It's likely that some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities affected by spray and/or large waves
  • Delays to public transport are likely, with longer journey times for rail and bus services.
  • Difficult driving conditions are possible, with delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges the main concern.

"A developing area of low pressure is expected to track across Northern Ireland, northern England and southern Scotland on Saturday.

"On the southern flank of this system, strong winds are expected, the strongest of these are likely to affect coastal and immediately adjacent regions of the west and south of England and Wales.

"Gusts of 50-60 mph are expected quite widely, with some more exposed locations seeing wind gusts of around 70 mph, mainly in coastal areas and just inland."
