A yellow weather warning for rain has been issued by the Met Office.
It runs from 6am on Thursday to 6am on Friday (2 and 3 November), and affects York and most of North Yorkshire.
The rain is associated with Storm Ciaran. While the worst of this weather front will affect the south of England, our part of the world will be hit by rain and high winds too.
The rain is particularly unwelcome right now. Not only is it coming during half term week, but also because the ground is already saturated, giving rise to more flooding concerns.
Today the flood warning for the River Foss upstream of Yearsley Baths has been removed.
In York, two new flood alerts – flooding is possible, be prepared – have been issued:
- River Foss – the Foss and its tributaries
- Upper River Ouse – area covered: riverside footpaths and low-lying land in York and to the south as far as Naburn Lock, including Kings Staith, Queens Staith, and South Esplanade.
In North Yorkshire and the East Riding these flood warnings remain in place:
- River Derwent at Buttercrambe Mill
- River Derwent at Stamford Bridge – The Weir Caravan Park and Kexby Bridge.
One resident shared these pictures of Wilberfoss this morning (Monday, 30 October).
Standing water is still on the roads, apparently caused by the heavy rain and poor drainage.
As we reported over the weekend, parts of Ryedale were also struggling with floodwater.
