for Flood alert in force now The Essex coast from St Peters Flat to and including,Shoeburyness and the Crouch and Roach estuaries

Flooding is possible - be prepared

This message has been issued because of forecast local weather conditions during spring tides. Tides are expected to be higher than usual and may cause minor flooding in low lying coastal areas. The forecast indicates a series of risk tides for the next 24 hours. We will update this message before each high tide. High water is due at Clacton at 11:58pm, on 18/11/2017. The detailed forecast for those that use it is for a peak level of 2.89mAODN, which is 0.45m above tide tables. The wind forecast is Force 5, North Westerly. (mAODN means height above average sea level, for more info refer to local tide tables). The forecast is just above the Flood Alert level and so any impacts will be minor and very localised to low lying coastal areas such as promenades and causeways to islands. The current forecast for the next tide at midday on Sunday is just below the Flood Alert level for this area and so we will update the information as appropriate Sunday morning
