Three Day Flood Risk Forecast

Valid from 10:30 on 20 Oct 2014

Summary

Despite unsettled conditions the forecast risk of flooding across England and Wales for today is very low. During the period of high tides Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning, a combination of large waves, strong winds and large coastal surge brings a medium likelihood of minor coastal flooding impacts to parts of Norfolk and Suffolk, bringing a low overall coastal flood risk to these counties. Other eastern coasts, along with the north-west coasts of England and Wales, may see isolated minor coastal flooding impacts, however the likelihood for any one location is low giving an overall very low coastal flood risk for these locations. Impacts are likely to include spray/wave overtopping in coastal areas that may affect roads, promenades and perhaps individual properties. This forecast is updated daily.
