Lower Lee Tributaries

Flood Alert

This alert remains in force due to forecast thundery rain which may affect the London area overnight on Sunday 27 May into Monday 28 May. Currently it is difficult to pinpoint exactly which areas will see the highest rainfall. If the higher rainfall totals fall in the Waltham Forest, Waltham Abbey, Waltham Cross, Barnet, Nazeing, Enfield, Chingford, Edmonton, Cheshunt or Tottenham areas, there is the possibility that some rivers could overtop their banks. This may result in some minor flooding to low lying land, roads and riverside gardens overnight Sunday into Monday. Surface water flooding is also possible wherever heavy showers occur. Take care near the areas of concern and monitor your local weather conditions. We are monitoring river levels and have staff in the field checking for and clearing blockages in these areas. This message will be updated on Monday morning or earlier if the situation changes.

This information last updated 6:18pm, Sunday 28th May.
