The Environment Agency is warning of high tides, combined with strong winds caused by Storm Brian, leading to an increased tidal surge over the weekend. The Environment Agency reports that the highest tide is likely to be around midday on Saturday.

The Environment Agency reports: “With a particularly high tide due in Yarmouth at midday tomorrow, we will be moving 100 metres of temporary barrier to the Isle of Wight today, ready to deploy in the morning. We will also be putting the boards into the RNLI slipway in Lymington this evening, as well as closing the gates tonight and tomorrow for the high tides”.

The Environment Agency’s five day flood forecast also predicts a risk of flooding in Wales and other parts of the South Coast. The NFU’s Adverse Weather, Water and Flooding Toolbox is a one stop shop to information to help keep up to date, include the Met office’s warning system and the Environment Agency’s five day flood forecast.
