River Wey at Weybridge

This Flood Warning has been removed.

River levels are falling, but still pose a flood risk. The flood warning for the area has now been removed.

However, a flood alert remains in force for the wider area, so flooding may still affect roads and low lying land.

Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We continue to monitor the situation. We are checking the condition of defences, and we will continue to monitor the forecast, and re-issue this warning if necessary.

Please avoid contact with flood water, and avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses.
