This is just an early heads up that we may be seeing some further intense rain during Friday evening and Saturday evening. Current forecast is for rain to move into the Region on both evenings giving some intense rainfall. The current locations which may be worst affected will be high ground of Western and Southern Cumbria. Early indications is that there is the potential for some surface water issues and rivers will again rise. We expect to be issuing further Flood Alerts but do not expect to issue any Flood Warnings at this time.
We will get a better more accurate forecast tomorrow so will endeavour to send a further update tomorrow.
A message has also been sent out on Cumbria Community Messaging, please take the time to register to receive warnings and information from this service if you haven’t already done so.
