Eastern Yar

Flood Alert

Following heavy rainfall over the weekend, water levels in Alverstone are now falling. In Sandown, the river will continue to rise slowly until lunchtime today. Over the next few hours, minor flood impacts affecting low lying roads will continue. The weather remains dry until tomorrow morning (Tuesday 18/12/2018). Heavy rain (20-30mm) is then forecast for the rest of the day into Wednesday (19/12/2018). Whilst water levels will fall today, the river will respond more quickly to rainfall tomorrow. If the heaviest forecast totals affect the area, the river could be the highest it’s been since early January this year. We continue to monitor levels. We will update this Flood Alert by 16:00 on 18/12/2018 or sooner, should heavy rain affect the river earlier.

This information last updated 10:53am, Monday 17th December.
