A two-day weather warning is in place for Cornwall and much of the country as Storm Gareth arrives.

The yellow warning is in place from 9pm tomorrow and continues until 3pm on Wednesday, with strong north-westerly winds expected during Tuesday night and through Wednesday causing possible transport disruption.

However, before that even arrives the county looks set to take a battering from heavy rain during tomorrow's morning commute, with a heavy band of rain forecast for the west.

Between 8mm and 16mm of rain is expected to fall in an hour shortly before 9am, which could lead to heavy surface water and potential problems on the roads during rush hour.

Winds of up to 34mph, with gusts reaching 49mph, are also forecast in Falmouth for that time, before the weather warning even comes into operation.

Gusts could then reach 53mph by Wednesday afternoon, with the Met Office warning to take care as coastal routes and sea fronts are likely to be affected by spray and/or large waves.

Some short term loss of power and other services is also possible.

Although the weather warning ends on Wednesday afternoon, the forecast is still predicting strong winds into Thursday, with gusts of up to 51mph still possible.
