Flooding is forecast to affect locations near the Upper River Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck and Derwent Water, with low lying land expected to be most affected, particularly around lake shore of Derwent Water. Further showers are forecast throughout the day. Lake levels are forecast to begin falling slowly, but the risk of flooding to low-lying land remains. We will continue to monitor levels closely.
