Flood Warning issued on 17 Feb 2022 15:45
The arrival of Storm Eunice overnight on Thursday brings the potential for very stormy conditions in the Bristol Channel.
The combination of high tide, forecast winds and wave heights gives a risk of flooding leading up to and around the high tide at Newport at 8:15am on the morning of Friday 18th February. Current forecasts indicate that a significant storm surge associated with Storm Eunice could cause tide levels at Newport to reach between 7m and 8m.
There is still much uncertainty about the extent of the possible impacts from the storm but they could be significant, we are monitoring the situation very closely. This message will be updated if the situation changes.
