Flood Alert

Flooding is possible for ALL high tides from Wednesday morning to Friday morning inclusive. Times of high water will vary along the coast. This sequence of Flood Alerts has been issued due to exceptionally high Spring Tides combined with large waves. The largest waves are expected on Friday morning. Tides may be marginally higher than predicted due to local weather conditions. The time of the high tide at Plymouth on Thursday 21st February is 19:24. The time of the high tide at Plymouth on Friday 22nd February is 07:41. Wave overtopping of sea defences and sea spray is possible in exposed coastal areas including Kingsand, Cawsand and Plymouth Sound. Winds are generally expected from a South Easterly direction and to remain below Force 6. People are advised to stay away from risk areas and take care next to the coast.
