Flood Alert issued on 21 Dec 2018 14:57
Loxwood Stream
Less rain fell than predicted last night. The risk of flooding is now reduced and impacts should be minimal. River levels will continue to rise along the River Lox and will peak at around 15:00 on Friday 21 December. However, river levels will not be as high as Thursday. Minor impacts could still be experienced, with small amounts of flood water affecting fields, gardens and rural roads. Friday and Saturday should be largely dry, which should allow river levels to fall. However, further rain is forecast for Sunday, which may cause river levels to rise again. We'll monitor forecasts and update our messages. Please remain prepared for flood risk to increase again over coming days. This message will be updated, or likely removed by 12:00 on Saturday 22 December.

Nearly half a month's rain has fallen over the past few days. River levels have been falling on the Lox today, but more rain is forecast overnight. There is uncertainty, but we think river levels will rise further. Flooding is possible Friday afternoon (21/12/2018), near Brewhurst Mill and the Onslow Arms which could see the highest river levels of the week so far. Minor flooding is expected, with flood water affecting fields, gardens and rural roads. Friday and Saturday should be largely dry, but further rain is forecast for Sunday. River levels on the Lox will remain higher than normal through the weekend. We'll monitor forecasts and update our messages. Please take precautionary measures to reduce flood risk in advance of Thursday evening and install flood protection products if you have them.

Loxwood Stream
Following yesterday's rainfall the river levels are steadily rising along the River Lox. We had less rain than we were expecting, therefore, flooding of properties is unlikely. But river levels will remain high until Wednesday evening. Small amounts of water may still affect the Onslow Arms and Brewhurst Mill as well as fields, gardens and rural roads. Further rainfall is forecast Thursday evening, which may cause river levels to rise again on Friday (21/12/2018). We continue to monitor levels and forecasts and will update our messages. Flood protection measures should be implemented where possible. This message will be updated by 11:00 on Thursday (20/12/2018)
