Flooding outlook – 14.20

date04 January 2014

There are no serious flooding impacts at present but a close watch is being kept on the potential for coastal flooding around high water on the East coast this afternoon from 16.00 to 17.00.

Coastal flood impacts in the East coast are currently considered likely to be slightly less than those experienced on 5 and 6 December. The main focus of concern is on coastal settlements along the East coast from Tayport in Fife to Eyemouth in Scottish Borders, includings communities in South Fife, East Lothian and Falkirk.

More detail can be found within individual alerts and warnings, these can be seen on our flood warning pages.

River and loch levels remain high, but the picture is generally improving with some respite until further rain on Sunday afternoon.

There is no immediate prospect of an end to the unsettled weather, which means the situation will be kept under close observation and further alerts and warnings will be issued as necessary and displayed on the website.
