In an updated statement on December 13, the Environmental Agency warned that “flooding was possible" in these places.

River levels are expected to be high due to spring tides, which could result in flooding of riverside roads as well as open spaces.

On the Environment Agency website, a statement read that astronomical tide levels are rising, with the river flow at Teddington Weir “high for this time of year” at 203 cubic metres per second and rising.

High tide is forecast in Richmond at 4.61mAOD at 02:45 today (December 14) and again with 4.60mAOD at 15:15 today (December 14)

It is expected that the flow will remain high for several days and the Environment Agency are currently monitoring the situation, with further updates today (December 14) at 8pm.

What to do

Residents in affected areas are being advised to monitor local water levels and weather conditions whilst flood alerts are in place, and to act on their flood plans.

People are also advised to avoid using low lying footpaths or entering areas prone to flooding.

However, flooding of properties is “not expected.”
