The Environment Agency has issued a flood alert for the Isle of Wight coastline.
Flooding is possible in lower lying areas due to a combination of rain, strong winds and high tides later tonight (Tuesday).
Time and date of high water 00:36 on 30/01/2013 Predicted astronomical tide level 1.66 mAOD Forecast surge height 0.56 m Forecast high water level 2.2 mAOD Forecast high water level in Chart Datum 4.81 mCD Forecast wind direction South Westerly Forecast wind strength Force 6 The forecast high water level does not breach the flood alert conditions, but gale force winds and large waves are predicted and so there is some concern that the high water level may be greater than expected.
