for Flood alert in force now The Suffolk Coast at Southwold

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 current forecast is for a single risk tide only, with no indication of later tides causing concern. High water is due at Lowestoft at 9:45am on 19 November 2017. The detailed forecast for those that use it is for a peak level of 1.73mAODN, which is 0.69m above tide tables. The wind forecast is Force 6, West North Westerly. (mAODN means height above average sea level, for more info refer to local tide tables). We are not currently expecting the situation to escalate, or to issue any further warning messages for the next tide. The forecast for this tide is slightly higher than the one seen on Saturday evening but impacts will be localised to the Southwold Harbour Area
