Flood Alert issued on 7 Nov 2021 11:14
River Welland, River Nene, The Wash
Stormy conditions are forecast, resulting in large waves moving down the East Coast of England on Sunday afternoon. This will lead to unusually high tidal levels along the tidal River Welland, tidal River Nene, and the Wash. The time and date of the forecast high water is 19:15 on 7th November 2021, however conditions may apply two to four hours either side of the high tide. The high tides combined with strong winds may result in wind-blown spray and wave splash causing localised pooling of water behind the sea defences. Low lying coastal land and roads will be affected first. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. We are constantly monitoring tide levels, and have staff in the field checking our defences and closing tidal gates where required. Please avoid using low lying coastal footpaths near beaches or promenades and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads, as sea spray and waves could be dangerous. This message will be updated as the situation changes.
