Met Office upgrade weather warning as strong gales and heavy rain forecast
The Met Office has upgraded their warning of strong winds in Cornwall as people all across the county brace for another onslaught of storms.
The Exeter-based national forecast company say stronger than anticipated winds will now tear across Cornwall on Wednesday and Thursday.
This accompanies their already in place warning of heavy rain from Tuesday until Friday at 3pm.
Initially the Met Office had issued a yellow “be aware” warning but earlier today they were forced to upgrade to an amber alert and urged people to “be prepared” as gale force winds are forecast.

The warning will come into play on Wednesday at midday until Thursday at 6.00am.
A Met Office spokesman said: “A vigorous area of low pressure is expected to move northeastwards across the UK later on Wednesday, clearing eastwards early on Thursday. This is likely to be accompanied by a swathe of gales across many parts of England and Wales which may be severe in places.
“The public should be prepared for the risk of disruption to transport and possibly also power supplies.
“The public should be aware of the risk of further disruption due to flooding.”
