The Foss and Ouse: Latest levels and forecasts

The latest update from the Environment Agency at 5.15pm puts the River Ouse in York city centre at 4.55m.

It is forecasting the river will peak at 4.73m at 5.45am tomorrow (Friday, 22 January). That’s well above the level where some flooding in properties is possible.

But it is also well short of the 5.2m-5.4m which would cause serious problems.
