The detailed forecast for those that use it is for a peak level of 3.28mAODN, which is 0.56m above tide tables. The wind forecast is Force 6, North-Westerly (mAODN means height above average sea level, for more info refer to local tide tables). High levels can be expected for 2hrs before and after the peak time at Clacton. Areas most at risk are around Fullbridge, Chandlers Quay and waterside properties at the Hythe. We are closely monitoring the situation and will update this message if the situation changes.
