Flooding is possible - be prepared
Over the last 12 hours we have seen heavy rainfall over the North Pennines. This has meant that the River Tees is now rising. The current main area of concern is the Upper River Tees, where River levels suggest that there will be flooding to low lying land and roads close to the river from around 7pm this evening (Wednesday 22nd November). River levels are forecast to peak between the hours of 9pm and 12pm. We expect the river to remain high overnight though no flooding to properties is currently forecast and warnings are not expected to be issued. Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions. Avoid walking or driving along riverside roads and footpaths. We are monitoring river levels closely and our operational teams are out on the ground checking and clearing any blockages from rivers. This message will be updated at 10am on Thursday morning or earlier if the situation changes.
