Flood warnings guide

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:

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.
