Our horrible wet weather is continuing (except mine & Peter’s weather will definitely improve from Tuesday!) There are flood warnings all over the country, and today there are 10 around the area of the Thames near where we live.
Yesterday there was only one warning near us, and the river is continuing to rise.
Today the flood warnings mention river levels like those seen in 2003. This is the first time I have heard 2003 mentioned with respect to flooding round here, it is the worst I remember. My photos from then are in my post from last January.
Here is what the Environment Agency warning says;
The river and flooding forecast is as follows: The River Thames remains very high and is continuing to rise slowly in the Hamm Court and Hamhaugh Island area. Flooding of properties close to the river is expected. River levels are currently expected to be higher than those seen during November and December 2012 and close to those of January 2003. The weather forecast is to expect a day of sunshine and showers today with some potentially heavy showers tonight that should clear by Wednesday morning.
