for Flood alert in force now Somerset coast at Porlock Weir

Flooding is possible - be prepared

There is a continued possibility of flooding for this coastline. Spray from large and powerful waves is expected to overtop sea walls as a result of onshore winds and tidal surge. The detailed tidal information is: The forecast high water is at 18:45 on 12/11/2019. The forecast tide level is 5.8 m AOD but with Force 6 strength north westerly winds. Tide times are in local time, using the 24 hour clock and refer to the Hinkley Point tidal gauge. Flooding to coastal roads, paths and farmland is therefore possible at these times, and conditions may apply up to two hours either side of the high tide. Please stay clear from large waves as they are dangerous and can contain debris. We continue to analyse the weather forecasts and closely monitor the situation. Conditions are forecast to improve on Wednesday with reducing wind speeds.
