It will be a cloudy start to the day for most Cornwall, at least weather-wise, before the day clears up. The weather today (Thursday 14th April) will lead into what should be a beautiful Easter weekend.
Forecasters from the Met Office in Exeter are predicting a lackluster start to the day with patchy mist and fog, particularly around the coasts and over the moors. The cloud will dissolve allowing sunny spells to develop for the afternoon. However, some south and west coasts may remain grey. It will be warmer than yesterday with a maximum temperature of 17°C.
Tonight will be a dry and beautiful evening, but low clouds, mist and fog will gradually spread eastward. It will stay dry and soft. The minimum temperature should be 8°C. It will be a gray start to Good Friday with scattered light rain or drizzle in the west. Skies will clear around lunchtime with some warm sunshine, especially in the east. Maximum temperature 19°C.
