Flood Alert issued on 13 Mar 2020 08:16
River Aire
This Flood Alert remains in force as impacts from recent flooding continue to affect communities in the tidal River Aire and land adjacent to the river is still affected by standing water. The lower River Aire downstream of Castleford has peaked below flood alert and warning thresholds. However, high spring tides between 09:30 and 10:30 this morning, 13/03/20, will cause levels to rise temporarily in the tidal sections of river below Chapel Haddlesey and there may be further over-flow of water into adjacent washlands. High tide levels are forecast to fall today and into the weekend. Our field teams will continue to check flood defences during daylight hours and our incident room is open. Please check for local road closures before you travel. This message will be updated by 16:30 on 13/03/20 or as the situation changes.

River Aire
This Flood Alert remains in force as the Lower Aire Washlands are mostly full and flooding continues to affect communities. Roads are affected in the area. The River Aire rose slightly due to last night’s rain, 29/02/20, but not to levels which would see further water enter the washlands. Peak tides are falling until Thursday but will continue to combine with high river levels to slow the drain of washlands, keeping levels high into next week. Significant draining of washlands will only occur once river levels drop enough. Scattered showers are forecast for the next few days, and we do not expect this to cause more water to enter the washlands from the river. We are pumping water to support washland draining and have deployed sandbags to help protect properties at risk. Check routes before you travel and do not drive through floodwater.
