    Our country is totally at the mercy of the strong jet stream this winter. It's been unrelenting. Definitely pushes for the climate change argument!

    Stay safe everyone.

    The greatest risk of coastal flooding is between 2-4hours either side of high tide. The greatest risk is from the high tide tomorrow morning.

     

    Times of the high tide nearest you can be found here:

    The quay was flooded here last night, it will flood the causeway connecting us and the next village for sure! I'm heading down to Swanage tomorrow, to catch high tide, hopefully some good picture opportunities.

    It's looking pretty grim for areas in the west and south for tomorrow - we're in a period of spring tides now until the 6th January, so alongside the coastal risk, there's also risks around tidal locking of watercourses if we see significant rainfall over the next three or four days.

    Can I ask what tidal locking of watercourses is????

    Where water courses drain into the sea, they usually only drain water when the tide is going out, out or on the turn.  Very high tides mean that these water courses can't drain water for as long, so water tends to back up in them as it moves downstream. It's usually an issue in periods of very high rainfall or very high tides.  It often results in some rivers bursting their banks because there's nowhere else for the water to go.

    We had a surge on the 5th, although it needs a north westerly to get a repeat up here.

    Hope this link works or search for west kirby storm to watch a car float off someone's drive on the tide.

    Strange, all of the Wirral bar Woodside is only under a flood alert at the moment but the Welsh side of the Dee is under a severe flood warning (that's two levels up). Woodside itself has a flood warning (the intermediate level).

    Not to question the integrity of the Environment Agency, but you may as well put West Kirby in the red if Woodside is.

    So far it appears that the far west areas where the high tide has passed have escaped any significant flooding. Let's hope that continues as the high tide makes it around the country.

    Can confirm that. Quite a few areas in Cornwall have experienced flooding but nothing as yet that can be termed significant, thank goodness.
