The Cornish summer would appear to be over as the county is about to be plunged into a week-long autumn chill, thanks to a cold blast of air from the Arctic.
After days of drizzle and clouds, a band of low pressure will hit the UK today and bring cooler weather for next week, according to forecasters.
The entire country will feel much colder than average for the time of year with chilly winds threatening to persist until the August Bank Holiday.
The Met Office is expecting unsettled windy conditions, with a mix of sunshine and showers.
Forecasters warn of “isolated blustery showers” on Tuesday to Thursday, with winds eventually easing, but continuing to feel cool.
Later ahead in the week, they say the weather will be “unsettled” and cool conditions will persist through the rest of the week, with many areas seeing showers.
Temperatures are set to be cool – or very cool early in the day.
A Met Office spokesman said: “Cornwall can expect to see spells of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these spells will then be interspersed with more unsettled conditions bringing showery outbreaks and perhaps more prolonged spells of rain.
“Daytime temperatures, meanwhile, are likely to be warm during fine spells and near or below average during unsettled weather.”
