Could ex-Hurricane Lorenzo spark more bad weather?

Could ex-Hurricane Lorenzo spark more bad weather?

Published by Emma Carton at 7:40am 1st October 2019. (Updated at 11:17am 1st October 2019)

Cornwall braces for more strong winds and torrential rain, as ex-Hurricane Lorenzo sweeps the Atlantic.

The Met Office admits there is the risk of stormy conditions towards the end of the week.

That said by the time the bad weather reaches our shores, it will be nowhere near hurricane strength.

Forecasters in Exeter have also said there is a chance that it could miss the Duchy and the UK completely.

A rain warning is in force for Devon between 6am and 8am on Tuesday but does not cover Cornwall: Read More.

What does the Met Office say?

"There is the possibility that Lorenzo could track towards us.

"It won't be a hurricane by the time it does, but it could bring some pretty unsettled weather later on Thursday and into Friday.

"However, there is the possibility that it will track further west than us.

"Be aware that there could be some difficult conditions, particularly on the roads, towards the end of the week with the potential of some unsettled weather due to what will be ex-Hurricane Lorenzo coming towards us.

"There may be the need for both wind and rain warnings".

Met Office Forecaster, Alex Burkhill

What is the full weather forecast?

Tuesday: "Scattered heavy showers will move eastwards today, with the risk of hail and thunder. The showers will ease through the late afternoon and evening but it will be a windy day".

Tuesday night: "It will soon become dry tonight, with clear spells developing overnight. The wind will ease and it will be a chillier night than of late".

Wednesday: "Wednesday will see a crisp and sunny start. Some patchy cloud will bubble up but there will be sunny spells. It will feel fresher than recent days too".

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday: "It is likely to turn more unsettled on Thursday, with a risk of heavy rain and strong winds to end the week. Saturday will perhaps start drier, with rain later".
