for Flood alert in force now Tidal Thames riverside from Putney Bridge to Teddington Weir

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Levels on the River Thames are expected to be high as a result of spring tides. The forecast high tide at Richmond is anticipated to be 4.65mAOD at 04:30 BST on 20 MAY 2019 and 4.50mAOD at 16:45 BST on 20 MAY 2019. Flooding of low-lying roads and footpaths is expected at these times, although conditions may exist for one to two hours either side of high tide. We believe there is a possibility of flooding for Putney Embankment (SW15), Chiswick Mall and Strand on the Green (W4), Thames Bank at Mortlake (SW14), Ranelagh Drive (TW1), Friars Lane and Water Lane (TW9), Riverside and The Embankment at Twickenham, and the Towpath below Teddington Lock. Flooding of properties is not expected. Astronomical tide levels are rising. The river flow at Teddington Weir is low for this time of year at 20 cubic metres per second and is steady. We anticipate the flows to remain low for the next five days.
