Property flooding is not currently expected. Levels on the River Kennet have remained high over the last several weeks in response to earlier rainfall and high groundwater levels. It will be largely dry today (26/04/18) with a few light showers possible. Heavy rain is then expected across the area on Friday. Levels on the River Kennet are expected to remain high over the coming days and flooding of low lying land and roads is expected to continue, especially in the Knighton area.
We are constantly monitoring river levels. Remain safe and be aware of your local surroundings, flood waters may be deep and fast flowing. Please refer to the River and Sea levels in England webpage for current levels. This message will be updated this evening if not before.
