North Sea coast from Whitby to Filey

Flood Alert

This flood alert is issued for the high tide at Scarborough. Large and powerful waves are expected to overtop sea defences at Scarborough along Marine Drive as a result of strong winds. Consequently, flooding is possible between 17:15 and 18.30 on Tuesday 20th November 2018. These particularly high tides are because of the naturally occurring astronomical tide cycle. We will monitor the situation and will update this information and issue warnings as required. Please stay aware of your surroundings and do not put yourself at risk. Be prepared to act on your flood plan. For local weather forecasts please see the Met Office website

This information last updated 7:32pm, Monday 19th November.
