This Flood Warning is for the high tides on Sunday 9th February. High tides at Dale are expected to occur at approximately 06:15 AM and 8:45 PM. 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. Please avoid seafront area around high tide. There is likely to be sea spray and possibly some wave overtopping. The current forecast only indicates a minor risk to properties, however there is still some uncertainty in the forecast, and it is recommended that residents in the most exposed properties take precautions should the forecast worsen. The slipway flood gates should be closed to minimise any potential impacts. We will continue to monitor the situation and update this message if the situation changes.
