This Flood Warning is for the high tide tonight on Tuesday 26th November and the high tide on Wednesday morning the 27th November. High tide at Newgale is expected to occur at approximately 6:10 pm on Tuesday evening and at approximately 06:25 am on Wednesday morning. The combination of the high tide and the forecast wind and wave conditions indicate there is a risk of wave and spray overtopping at Newgale, such overtopping could affect the stability of the Pebble bank allowing some pebbles to move onto the road. The winds are forecast to be force 6-7 from a general southerly direction through Tuesday evening and are forecast to veer to a general northerly direction force 4 by the Wednesday morning tide. Extra care should be taken in this area during this period, sea spray and wave overtopping can be dangerous and can contain debris. We will update this message if the situation changes.


Flood Warning issued on 16 Apr 2018 15:36
South West
This Flood Warning is for the high tide tomorrow morning on Tuesday 17th April. The tide on Tuesday morning is set to occur at approximately 8:15 am local time in Newgale. This tide will coincide with tidal surge and moderate to large offshore waves. Winds are forecast to be force 7 from a south-south-west direction. Water levels are forecast to run up to the top of the pebble bank; this gives a high risk that water could overtop the bank. It is possible that debris, such as pebbles, could be moved onto the road disrupting traffic. Water could also accumulate on the road, around properties and on low lying land in the area. Although conditions are set to improve by the high tide on Tuesday evening, if there is significant change in the forecast, or any alteration to the pebble bank this message will be updated, and the flood warning will remain in force for both tides.
