“On Wednesday, winds could increase to gale force winds of 45 to 50mph in Cornwall.
“There is potential later in the evening of 60mph gale force winds in exposed areas, such as the coastal areas and Bodmin Moor.
“There is potential for large waves in the coastal areas, which could have a warning in-place by next week.”
The so-called Storm Emily was named after Wuthering Heights author Emily Bronte by the Weather Channel, after deep low pressure from the Atlantic are due to replace the high pressure across England.
According to the Met Office, the North West region will be the hardest hit by gale force winds next week, including parts of Wales.
In Cornwall it is likely to bring heavy rain along with the gale force winds and weather warnings.
