More stormy weather on the way for Cornwall
More wet and windy weather is on the way for Cornwall - but forecasters say they are not expecting any repeat of Monday's 'St Jude' storm.
Experts at the Met Office have warned of gale-force winds, rough seas and heavy rain, but say it all adds up to fairly normal autumnal weather.
They were reacting to media reports suggesting a second 'superstorm' could hit the UK this weekend.
A spokesman said: "It’s fair to say we are expecting a spell of unsettled autumnal weather over the next week, with some strong winds and heavy rain possible – but comparisons with the ‘St Jude’s Day storm’ are wide of the mark.

"Currently forecasts suggest that we will see several low pressure systems affecting the country over the next week – which is a fairly typical picture for UK weather at this time of year.
"These could bring gale force winds at times to some areas, but we don’t expect gusts to be anything like the exceptionally strong winds we saw on Monday.
"In fact, the winds are more likely to be similar to those we saw during the day last Sunday – the day before the big storm.
"Of course, even gale force gusts do bring some risks and the Met Office will closely watch developments to assess any impacts.
"The low pressure systems coming through over the next week are likely to be lead to some rough seas and big waves around some coasts, as well as some heavy rain.
"The Met Office and Environment Agency will be working together to monitor the risk of any impacts from these over the next few days.
"Given the outlook for unsettled weather, we’d advise people to stay up to date with the latest forecasts and warnings from the Met Office."
