  1. Flood alert

    Areas affected: Tidal Thames riverside from Putney Bridge to Teddington Weir

    ACTIVE

    Started at: 18:28 BST on Mon 20 May

    Flooding is possible - be prepared

    Levels on the River Thames are expected to be high as a result of spring tides. The forecast high tide at Richmond is anticipated to be 4.60mAOD at 05:15 BST on 21 MAY 2019.

    Flooding of low-lying roads and footpaths is expected at this time, although conditions may exist for one to two hours either side of high tide.

    We believe there is a possibility of flooding for Putney Embankment (SW15), Chiswick Mall and Strand on the Green (W4), Thames Bank at Mortlake (SW14), Ranelagh Drive (TW1), Friars Lane and Water Lane (TW9), Riverside and The Embankment at Twickenham, and the Towpath below Teddington Lock.

    Flooding of properties is not expected.

    Astronomical tide levels are peaking. The river flow at Teddington Weir is low for this time of year at 20 cubic metres per second and is steady. We anticipate the flows to remain low for the next 5 days.
