Yellow warning of rain and wind

Be aware

05:00 on Friday until 19:00 on Friday

A brief spell of heavy rain and strong winds could lead to difficult travel conditions, as the summer holiday season starts for some. Standing water and spray may make journeys longer, and could lead to minor surface water flooding. Winds could be sufficiently strong to cause some bridge restrictions, and bring down branches from trees. Conditions could also be hazardous for those engaged in outdoor activities.

Chief Forecaster's assessment

Winds will increase to bring gusts of around 40 mph inland and 50 mph on coasts for a period of a couple of hours as a squally band of rain approaches. Locally gusts could be 10 mph or so stronger, especially on headlands. After a brief spell of intense rain, winds will decrease - this happening during the morning over Cornwall but not till evening in the east of the area. Around 10-20 mm of rain will fall in a short time.
