CONDITIONS

Heavy rainfall, particularly in the Midlands and Peak District yesterday is leading to still increasing levels of “Fresh” in all parts of the Trent.

Seriously threatening the natural banks again up around Shardlow at the top of the navigable non tidal river, the surge of water is only just starting to arrive on the tidal Trent, so while levels are still relativly low below Cromwell, outward flows are liable to already be strong and getting stronger today.

Tides are on “Springs” today, so while levels on the tidal section below Torksey are low right now, some inward flow on the rising tide might still occur here, but it is difficult to predict flows above Gainsborough other than “outward” and gaining in strength today!
