Flood Warning 122WAF933
Lower River Nidd
Warning added: 19:38, 16th March 2018
This flood alert has been issued as a result of high levels at Skip Bridge on the River Nidd to where it joins the River Ouse. River levels have been rising gradually throughout Friday in response to recent rainfall. The level at Skip Bridge has reached 3m and is expected to remain above this level overnight. Further bands of rain and snow showers are forecast but we do not anticipate this to cause any further significant impact, and we should see levels starting to fall during Saturday into Sunday. We will continue to monitor the situation. Please continue to check the GOV.UK website for current river levels and more detailed weather forecasts from the Met Office.
