Newstreet, Waterside gates closed. Dunns lane to be opened Thursday AM.
Uckinghall Flood gate closed
Deerhurst Church & Severn way gates closed
Ashleworth gates closedLevels on the River Severn down to Saxons Lode are now receding. The river level is now peaking in Gloucester. Rainfall over the next few days may result in some rivers showing small increases. The rainfall at the weekend may see some Flood Alerts thresholds crossed again. There is a low liklihood high tides in combination with high fluvial levels at the bottom of the River Severn may result in impacts over the weekend and into next week. Tides are now rising towards a large set of springs (4th highest of the year), peaking over the weekend. This may result in Tidal Flood Alerts/Warnings being issued on both the Severn and Wye Estuarys, but this is currently low confidence.   There is a Gloucestershire FAS at 11:30 in the meantime we are monitoring the tides
