The last of many weather warnings issued by the Met Office across Cornwall is set to expire today but temperatures look set to plummet over the weekend.
Exeter-based Met Office, the UK’s national weather service, issued a number of rain and wind warnings since before Christmas.
And running into the new year, storm Hercules was unleashed on the Cornish coast, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.
But it seems the last of the stormy weather has passed as the Met Office’s final heavy rain warning will expire at 9.00am today.
However, a spokesman said Cornwall is due to turn colder from Saturday night with frost and patchy fog expected.
Sunshine and light showers are forecast on Monday.
Looking to next week, a spokesman said: “Although showers and longer spells of rain will continue to affect the UK, conditions are not expected to be as stormy as those of recent weeks. At first, the strongest winds and heaviest rain are most likely in the west of the UK, then perhaps in the south and southwest, whilst the east will hang on to the driest weather. It will become colder.”
