Flood warnings guide
The Environment Agency (EA), Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) constantly monitor rainfall, river levels and sea conditions to forecast the possibility of flooding.
There are three types of warning issued when flooding is forecast. These warnings are: flood alerts, flood warnings and severe flood warnings.
When flood warnings or severe flood warnings are forecast in England, Scotland or Wales, a block will appear on our homepage. This block will also appear on relevant forecast pages.
You will find links to further information for each relevant national body:
- England - Environment Agency (EA)
- Scotland - Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA)
- Wales - Natural Resources Wales (NRW)
The information on the flood warnings block is updated every 15 minutes. Remember to refresh your browser to ensure that you are viewing the latest warnings.
In Northern Ireland, we work with partners to raise awareness of weather events that may result in flooding impacts for people and property.
