Flood Warning issued on 17 Feb 2022 16:27
The arrival of Storm Eunice overnight on Thursday brings the potential for very stormy conditions.
The combination of high tide, forecast winds and wave heights gives a risk of flooding leading up to and around the high tide at Milford Haven at 7:20am (8:57am Aberystwyth) on the morning of Friday 18th February. Current forecasts indicate that a storm surge associated with Storm Eunice could cause significant tide level increase.
There is still much uncertainty about the extent of the possible impacts from the storm but they could be significant, we are monitoring the situation very closely.
This message will be updated if the situation changes.

The winds are forecast to be force 8 to 9 on Sunday morning, dropping to Force 7 to 8 by the evening, from a general South Westerly direction. Values in Tide Tables are not especially large during Sunday, however, these tides will coincide with Storm Ciara which will bring strong winds, tidal surge and very large waves. Impacts are only expected to be relatively minor in this area, however please avoid seafront area around high tide. There is likely to be sea spray, and possibly wave overtopping. In combination with strong winds conditions will be dangerous. Based on the current forecast impacts are expected to be greatest on the Sunday morning tide; the risk is greatly reduced by Sunday evening.
