River Thames for the Abingdon Area

Flood alert

Property flooding is not currently expected. River levels are steady or continue to rise slowly on the River Thames following recent rainfall. Therefore, flooding of low-lying land, footpaths, tow paths and roads is expected to continue, along the entire length of the Thames from Abingdon to Dorchester. A weather warning is in force covering Oxfordshire for snow overnight and through most of tomorrow, 24/01/21. This could bring as much as 5-10cm to parts of Oxfordshire. We expect river levels to remain high over the weekend as some Thames tributaries continue to rise. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our incident response staff are operating weirs to reduce flood risk. Please remain safe and aware of your local surroundings and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses. This message will be updated tomorrow morning, 24/01/21, or as the situation changes.
