Five day weather warning issued for Cornwall
4:40pm Thursday 4th October 2012 in Cornwall
weather warnings have been issued for Cornwall for the next five days, with periods of heavy rain set to affect the whole of the south west from tonight.
The yellow warnings have been issued by national weather forecasters at the Met Office.
The warnings state: "Heavy rain is likely to move eastwards across southwest England this evening. With the ground already being almost saturated, the public should be aware of the risk of localised surface water flooding.
"Periods of heavy rain are likely across the southern half of Wales, southwest England and the southwest Midlands from the beginning of Friday until Saturday morning.
"It is looking increasingly likely that one area of heavy rain will move through during the small hours of Friday followed by a drier interlude, before further heavy, persistent rain moves eastwards later on Friday into the early hours of Saturday. "However there still remains considerable uncertainty in the details of the heavy rain by late Friday and the warning may be adjusted further as the event approaches."
The warning is also in place for Sunday and Monday, with a more detailed forecast expected tomorrow.
