Further to the Advance Notice issued on 30th September with regard to high tides.

Particularly high tides are forecast for the coming weekend. If associated with certain weather conditions there is a risk of flooding of low lying areas adjacent to the river.

On the basis of current weather forecast and tidal surge predictions, there are risks of flooding. On current information, the risk on Saturday 7th October is relatively low. On Sunday 8th October the forecast of rain, south/south-easterly winds and fall in atmospheric pressure indicate a moderate risk of flooding associated with the evening high tide (7.12 p.m.).
