Flood Warning issued on 17 Mar 2019 00:33
Levels have peaked and are beginning to fall. The rain has cleared the catchment, but the threat of showers remains into the early hours of Sunday morning. Consequently, the risk of flooding is reducing and we do not currently expect the forecast showers to cause the rivers to rise to levels which could result in property flooding.
Our incident response staff are closely monitoring the forecast from the Leeds Incident Room. Please see the GOV.UK website for a 5 day flood forecast.
This message will be updated in 8 hours, or as the situation changes.
