Here's the ones I use, Jill:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2641181 (Norwich) For the North Broads and Western South Broads

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2643490 (Lowestoft) For the North Broads east of Acle and For the South Broads south and east of Cantley

Surprisingly enough there can be a considerable difference in weather between the two!

16:30 Thursday.

The pressure is going back up and the wind easing down over the Northern Broads now.

 

The local BBC weather news though are advising that the risk of flooding is still a high risk for the next three high tides on the coast, now, 5am tomorrow morning and 5pm tomorrow afternoon.

 

It's a Spring tide period and the very strong North Westerly winds and low pressure has pushed the sea level up.

 

The EA river level gauge at Potter is not showing flood levels there at the moment, and the webcams at Horning & Potter don't show the banks being breached there so far.

Sorry, I put up the low water times instead of high water, which should have been around 10pm tonight and 10:30 am tomorrow.

 

The important point though, is that even though the winds are dropping quickly now, the flood risk is still high for at least another 24 hours.

Due to potential high water on Friday 13 January, new temporary flood barriers will be deployed in Lowestoft for the first time. 

Current Environment Agency predictions show high water levels are possible on Friday and could reach the lowest quay height, triggering the deployment of the temporary barriers.

With construction works to prepare for storage of the barriers on site currently underway, additional time is required to deploy the temporary barriers to ensure they are in place ahead of Friday. A flood warning has not been issued and the situation may change as Friday approaches. However – given that this is also the first time the barriers have been used – the Council has chosen to take action now as a precaution. Therefore, erection of the barriers will begin on Tuesday 10th January. 

Barriers will be placed on the south side of Lake Lothing in the areas of Kirkley Ham and Belvedere Road. It may also become necessary to erect barriers in the Waveney Road area. All barriers will be situated on private land and therefore traffic disruption is not expected.

Meanwhile, residents are advised to check their risk of flooding (www.gov.uk/check-flood-risk) and to register for flood alerts if they have not already done so. This can be done via www.gov.uk/sign-up-for-flood-warnings or by calling 0345 988 1188. While the barriers can provide some relief, they cannot entirely prevent all properties and locations from flooding and normal precautions should be taken. 

Further information will be available as the week progresses.

Boats behind the barrier moored at Herbert Woods are fine with their lines and fenders. At the Bridge on the Parish moorings where their day boats are, the boats are much higher but still no problems. Even Harry May's boat looks quite comfortable.

High tide in 15 minutes and I'm off to bed.
