Flood Alerts remain in force across Herefordshire this morning. Alerts remain in force on the River Wye, River Lugg, River Leadon Catchment, River Arrow and the Upper Teme.

River levels in Hereford are expected to peak later this morning but no major flooding is expected. Riverside paths may briefly flood when the river peaks in the city.


River levels are forecast to rise at the Hay-On-Wye river gauge as a result of heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland is expected from 21:00 Sunday. We expect flooding to affect low lying land and roads along the River Wye from Hay on Wye to Ross on Wye. Other locations that may be affected include the A438, Byford, Bredwardine and Hereford. Predicted peaks:- Hay on Wye 1.9m to 2.3m on 14/12 morning, Bredwardine 4.1m to 4.4m on 14/12 morning, Belmont 4.2m to 4.5m on 14/12 morning, Old Wye Bridge 3.6m to 4.0m at noon on 14/12, Mordiford 3.9m to 4.3m on 14/12 afternoon, Ross on Wye 3.0m to 3.4m on 14/12 afternoon. Further rainfall is forecast over the next 24 hours. We expect river levels to remain high until 15/12/20.
