Tyne and Wear Coast

Warning no longer in force

The risk of flooding from the North Sea along the Tyne and Wear Coast has now reduced. Winds have eased and the wind direction has changed, which means we are no longer expecting large amounts of spray and overtopping waves. There may still be standing water and debris along promenades and behind walls in some locations. No further flooding to coastal areas is expected. For a 5 day flood risk forecast please see the GOV.UK website or for a weather forecast see the Met Office website.

This information last updated 8:00pm, Sunday 18th March.
