Tweed Estuary
This warning is in place for Berwick-upon-Tweed and Tweedmouth. The North East is currently experiencing relatively high tides and for the Thursday evening high tide we will experience an approximate 0.7m surge due to the Storm Caroline low pressure system. The storm will also create significant waves and overtopping is expected between 5.00pm and 7.00pm at Pier Road and at other low lying areas of Berwick. Extreme care should be taken close to exposed coastal locations due to the risk of crashing waves. We will continue to monitor the situation and reissue this warning for any subsequent tides if required. Subsequent tides on Friday 08/12 and into the weekend are likely to pose less risk.
