Fears that exceptionally high tides could cause flooding in Burnham-On-Sea have eased with the news that the weather is likely to remain calm.

The Environment Agency had warned coastal towns around the Bristol Channel that they would be at risk from high tides on September 8th, 9th and 10th if they coincided with stormy weather.

But the latest weather forecasts for the dates indicate conditions will be fine with only light wind.

Environment Agency spokesman Paul Gainey told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “The long-term weather forecast is looking quite positive and there should be no adverse conditions at the time of the September high tides.”

“We are still verging on the side of caution as these forecasts are not always 100 per cent accurate and things can change, but at the moment we can say the risk of flooding has receded.”

On Friday September 8th, the wind is forecast to be from the Southeast at 11mph, on Saturday September 9th it’s forecast to be from the Northwest at 9mph, and on Sunday September it will blow from the North Northeast at 11mph.
