Upper Bristol Avon Area

Flood Alert

Persistent frontal rainfall has passed over the area today, often heavy over high ground. The rainfall has now generally passed through the area leading to a drier day on Wednesday. Although the weather conditions are improving, rivers continue to see a reaction to the rain that has already fallen. Low lying land and some roads may be affected. River levels on the Tetbury Avon at Brokenborough, Sherston Avon at Fosseway, River Avon at Great Somerford and Dauntsey Brook at Dauntsey are all rising in response to the rain throughout Tuesday with most peaking overnight and into the morning. Teams have been out on the ground clearing trash screens where required. We will update this message on Wednesday morning.

This information last updated 8:09pm, Tuesday 18th December.
