Weather forecasters are warning of possible flooding in Cornwall over the next two days.

A yellow warning of heavy rain was today issued by the Met Office and will last until tomorrow, with likely surface floods and spray on the roads.

The downpours were due stop on Tuesday but start again on Wednesday when gale force winds will also rampage through the region, according to the Met Office.

Met Office forecaster Jenny Rourke said: “From this evening until tomorrow rain is coming across Cornwall.

“There will be periods of rain with heavy rainfall at times.

“Towards the east of Cornwall they have a yellow warning.

“There will be minor surface water flooding.

“Drivers should watch out for spray and water on the roads.”

There are slow-moving frontal systems, containing some very mild and moist air.

The bad weather could cause 20mm to 30mm of rain quite widely and nearer to 50mm in some areas.
