Cornwall weather warning of ice as temperatures in December fall

Temperatures are set to plummet across Cornwall in the coming days across Cornwall, leading to a yellow weather warning for ice and even a small chance of snow in some parts of Cornwall.

The Met Office is warning that it will feel like 1°C on the coast and as low as -2°C in more central areas, such as St Austell, overnight between Wednesday and Thursday, while still only feeling like 1°C during the day.

It has issued a yellow weather warning for snow and ice in the south of England, with parts of the north and east of Cornwall falling within that range, including Newquay, St Austell, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Launceston.

It runs from 10am on Wednesday until 6am on Thursday, with ice the most likely issue to watch out for – although forecasters are saying there is a “small chance of disruption” from snow and ice.

The Met Office said: “There is a slight chance that bus and train services may be delayed or cancelled, with some road closures and longer journey times.

“There is a small chance of travel delays on roads with some stranded vehicles and passengers, along with delayed or cancelled rail and air travel.

“A slight chance that power cuts may occur, with the potential to affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage.

“A small chance of injuries from slips and falls on icy surfaces.”
