River Blyth
This message has been issued because there is a possibility of some flooding of infrastructure, homes and businesses between 09:15am and 11:15am tomorrow, Monday 10th February. High tides are expected as spring tides coincide with a surge. The location most at risk of flooding is the A12 at Blythburgh. The detailed forecast for those that use it is for a peak level at Lowestoft of 2.18mAODN at 10:15am, on Monday 10th February, which is 1.19m above tide tables, wind Force 8, WSW. (mAODN is height above average sea level, for more information refer to local tide tables). The preceding overnight tide at 22:00pm is not anticipated to result in any flooding. High water at Blythburgh will be around 1hr later. Take care on coastal roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in danger. We are closely monitoring the situation and not expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue anything else for the following tide.
