Flooding outlook - 29 November

  29 November 2015

Richard Brown, Hydrology Duty Manager said:

"Today sees a similar picture to yesterday. High tides on the Scottish Coast coupled with strong winds could bring some impacts in low lying coastal areas.

"High tides in Orkney will be around 1115, and 2345 tonight, in Shetland around 1300 and in Portpatrick around 1330.  These could bring some local travel disruption and cause sea spray and wave overtopping close to the coast. As always, we urge people to be careful in such conditions.

 “Monday will see more wintry showers which lock in the moisture but Tuesday brings a prolonged spell of wet weather and melting snow which will last into Wednesday. We’ll be keeping an eye on the potential for flooding over that period.
