SOUTH Devon was on weather alert again on Thursday amid warnings that more than an inch of rain could fall in the space of three hours.
Flood alerts were sent out for the South Devon area, including the rivers Dart and Teign.
The Met Office expanded its “yellow” warning to the western half of the country and the south coast with the worst of the weather front expected to hit the region during today.
Up to 40mm (1.5in) of rain could fall on some areas, although a Met Office spokesman said it was unclear where the worst of the rain would hit and how fast the storm would track across the region.
The warning was issued from 6pm last night until midnight tonight.
The Met Office said conditions in Devon and Cornwall would improve significantly as the weekend approached, with warmer days and less humidity, albeit with falling temperatures at night.
