River levels are likely to remain high throughout today, Thursday 14/11/2019. We are still in a period of higher spring tides that will slow the drainage from the River Don and adjacent washlands. We are expecting a band of rain to move across South Yorkshire today. Given the wet ground conditions, we expect the River Don to rise in response to this rainfall, peaking through Doncaster on Friday morning, and this will keep levels in the tidal part of the catchment at a high level.
