for Flood alert in force now Somerset coast at Porlock Weir

Flooding is possible - be prepared

Low pressure will cause sea levels to be higher than forecast in tide tables. Moderate to strong winds are expected over the next 24 hours. Overtopping and onshore flooding may occur as a result of high water levels combined with high energy waves, as well as from sea spray, where strong winds blow water from the crests of waves onshore. The time and date of the first forecast high water is 08:45 on 22/11/2017. The forecast tide level is 5.44 m AOD. The forecast wind strength and direction is Force 6 South South Westerly. The time and date of the second forecast high water is 20:45 on 22/11/2017. The forecast tide level is 5.28 m AOD. The forecast wind strength and direction is Force 7 South South Westerly. Please note all tide times are in local time and are using the 24 hour clock and refer to the high water time at Hinkley Point.
