for Flood alert in force now Witham in South Kesteven

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Over the last 12 hours we have seen heavy rainfall in the River Witham area. This means that the River Witham is now rising, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river from Sunday afternoon onwards. We expect the river to remain high throughout Sunday. More rain is forecast to fall on Monday 14 October which may keep river levels high for longer. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. We are monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. This message will be updated as the situation changes.
