for Flood alert in force now Groundwater flooding in West Dean, Singleton, Charlton, East Dean and Chilgrove

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Groundwater levels in the upper Lavant Valley are still high, and now rising again following 60mm of rain in the past 10 days. If the current rate of rise continues, it is probable that groundwater will peak lower than we saw in December 2019, towards the end of next week (25/1/2020). Minor impacts from high groundwater could be possible, including springs appearing and water on roads. The odd isolated shower is possible Friday 17/1/2020, but the weekend and at least the start of next week should remain predominantly dry. There is still a suggestion that unsettled weather may return next weekend (24/1/2020). We will continue to monitor levels and forecasts. If you have pumps to help manage water levels in cellars, please ensure they are operational. We will update this message by 14:00 24/01/2020.
