Just as York’s river levels start to fall, they go and forecast more rain.
Today (Monday) the Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain which affects York and Selby.
It runs from 3am to 4pm tomorrow (Tuesday, 24 October).
“Heavy rain at times may lead to further flooding,” the Met Office says.
“There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.
“There is a small chance of fast-flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.
“There is a small chance that some communities will become cut off by flooded roads.”
Three flood warnings remain in place for York:
- River Ouse at Naburn Lock
- River Ouse at York – riverside properties
- River Ouse at York – St George’s Field and Queen’s Staith.
However, the level of the River Ouse at the Viking Recorder began falling from a peak of 3.64m at 11.15am yesterday (Sunday, 22 October).
It is forecast to drop to normal levels by 2.15pm tomorrow (Tuesday, 24 October) before beginning to climb again.
