River

Localised significant river flooding impacts are possible but not expected in Area A on Area of Concern Map 1 for today (Sunday) and into Monday. Any impacts will be restricted to small, fast responding catchments and urban watercourses. This is due to the potential for torrential thunderstorms to develop across parts of England and Wales and move north-eastwards.

Coastal

The coastal/tidal flood risk is VERY LOW for the next five days.

Surface

Localised significant surface water flooding impacts are possible today (Sunday) and Monday in Area A on Area of Concern Map 1, particularly in urban areas. This is due to the potential for torrential thunderstorms to develop across parts of England and Wales and move north-eastwards.
