Flood Alert issued on 1 Oct 2019 18:35
North Sea
High tides and stormy conditions have been moving down the East Coast over the past few days.

Flood Alert issued on 1 Oct 2019 14:27
North Sea
High Tides and stormy conditions are forecast moving down the East Coast. This will lead to higher than normal tide levels along the Lincolnshire Coast. The next time of high water of concern is 08:45 on Wednesday 02 October 2019, however conditions may apply 2 to 4 hours either side of the high tide. The high tides combined with strong winds, may result in wind-blown spray and wave splash, causing localised pooling of water behind the sea defences. Low lying coastal land and roads will be affected first. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn’t likely and flood warnings are not expected to be issued at this point. This message will be updated as the situation changes.
