Environment Agency Rainfall Warning.

Rainfall Warning for Sunday 14th January to Monday 15th January


Heavy rainfall is forecast for Sunday evening into Monday morning and will be accompanied by strong to gale force winds in some locations.  It is anticipated that some Flood Alerts will be issued for some river catchments across the County on Sunday afternoon.  This means flooding to low lying land and roads is possible.  We do not expect river levels to reach any Flood Warning thresholds and would expect no property to be affected.
Be flood ready. It is important that you are prepared for flooding and we encourage you to take 3 simple steps:-
  1. Sign up to Flood Warning Service to receive free flood warnings
  2. Know what to do when a flood warning is issued.  We encourage you have a personal flood plan for you and your family
  3. Keep an eye on the situation.  You can view at 5 day weather forecast and monitor river levels online at https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/ and www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/

Further information is available on our website www.gov.uk/flood or by ringing Floodline on 0345 988 1188
