The Met Office has issued its THIRD weather warning in a week for torrential rain in Cornwall.

Forecasters say heavy downpours could spark flash flooding for areas north of Bodmin.

The yellow alert will be in force from 6pm on Saturday evening until 5pm on Sunday evening.

It comes as South West Storm Chasers warns 55mph winds could whip up huge waves on the coasts.

What can we expect?

  • Flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely
  • Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer
  • Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer
  • Some interruption to power supplies and other services likely

What is the forecast?

"An area of persistent, heavy rain will arrive from the southwest by Saturday evening before moving east overnight and through Sunday. 

"The rain should clear from the southwest on Sunday morning but will persist over parts of north Wales and northern England through much of Sunday. 

"Through the period many parts of this area will see 20 to 30mm of rain. 

"Where the heaviest rain will fall remains uncertain but there is the potential for 30 to 40mm of rain to fall within a few hours in places as well as 60-70mm over the higher ground of Dartmoor, Wales and the Peak District".
