Take care out on the Broads today. There are flood warnings in place around various rivers and the harbour at Lowestoft. You can see the details on the following website.

Looking on Herbert Woods webcam, the water at the 24 hour moorings looks very high. I see high water is not until around 2.30pm at Potter so there might be a real need for wellies today!

Update that I just found for one of the warnings in place.

The tidal River Waveney from Ellingham to Breydon Water

Flooding is possible - be prepared

This message has been issued because there is a possibility of some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths this afternoon, Monday 30 January 2019, between 12:00am and 02:00pm at Burgh Castle, and between 02:00pm and 04:00pm at Beccles Quay. This is due to the natural tide locking effect of high tidal waters moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads river system at low tide. We expect to see high water levels at Beccles Quay. We are expecting the situation to continue through Tuesday and Wednesday this week as tide levels remain high but are not expecting the level of risk to escalate. We expect heavy rain on Monday evening which may take longer to drain into the broads due to the higher water levels. Take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We are monitoring the situation and will update this message as necessary.

And pretty much the same for the Yare.

The tidal River Yare from Thorpe St Andrew to Breydon Water

Flooding is possible - be prepared

This message has been issued because there is a possibility of some minor flooding to riverside roads and footpaths this afternoon, Monday 30 January 2019, between 12:00am and 02:00pm at Brundall, and Reedham. This is due to the natural tide locking effect of high tidal waters moving up the rivers from Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft that restricts the normal drainage out to sea of the Broads river system at low tide. We expect to see high water levels in Brundall and Reedham riverside areas. We are expecting the situation to continue through Tuesday and Wednesday this week as tide levels remain high but are not expecting the level of risk to escalate. We expect heavy rain on Monday evening which may take longer to drain into the broads due to the higher water levels. Take care on waterside roads and footpaths and don't put yourself in unnecessary danger. We are monitoring the situation and will update this message as necessary.

We have all fingers and toes crossed that this lot of water works its way down the system by the weekend.

We are picking up Swan Ranger from Richardsons on Saturday and as lovely as the upper Ant is we don't was to be spending a whole week up there!

Your right John. The guy from the unlucky boatyard concerned took off what was left of the top screen,both side pieces and the metal behind the upper helm seat. Glad I,m not footing the bill
