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 Harwich at 11:48pm, on 18/11/2017. The detailed forecast for those that use it is for a peak level of 2.51mAODN, which is 0.42m above tide tables. The wind forecast is Force 5, NW. (mAODN means height above average sea level, for more info refer to local tide tables). The following risk tide on Sunday 19 November at 12:05am is currently forecast to be a Flood Alert. The tide is forecast to just at reach the Flood Alert level and so any impacts will be very localised to low lying areas
