The Saturday morning showers were a stark comparison to the glorious summer weather Cornwall experienced to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on Thursday and Friday.
The off-season rain comes as street parties across the county are due to take place to commemorate the Queen’s momentous occasion.
There is a thunderstorm yellow weather warning for much of East Cornwall and extending into Devon, but fortunately for West Cornwall revelers it does not cover the whole of the Duchy.
Full forecasts for Cornwall locations can be found below:
Overnight and early morning showers threatened to dampen spirits for street parties in Falmouth, but the Met Office says overcast skies will be present for the rest of the afternoon with a low chance of rain.
The Met Office has predicted that there is a 60% chance of precipitation and light rain in Helston between 11am and 12pm. Other than that there is a chance of rain at 3pm but as with Falmouth gray skies are expected to dominate the day.
Trouro:Very little chance of rain for the Cornish capital with light winds also on Saturday. Still not the weather t-shirt from previous holidays!
Heavy rain between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. is forecast for Redruth with an 80% chance of precipitation. Otherwise, the day looks to be mostly dry, apart from a 50% chance of light showers by 3 p.m.
Dry but cloudy is the outlook for Penzance on Saturday, but wind gusts to 26mph could justify those hosting street parties to make sure their chairs don’t fly around with the breeze! Much of the cloud appears to dissipate at 9 p.m.
