PostSubject: Storms this week   Storms this week EmptySun Jul 21, 2013 9:54 pm

Looks likely we are going to see some thunderstorms this coming week accompanied by intense rain.

It's great news for the non tidal river giving a bit of a welcome flush though the tributaries could be quite flashy, so care.

My concern is the full tidal and if we get a big sewage overflow. The conditions are similar to 2011, hot dry and little rain which means the sewers will not have had any sort of flush since May. All adds up to potential for some serious damage to fish and invertebrates, not good.

On the plus side, the tides are huge, unusually high for this time of year so a spill onto the high should be fairly diluted. If on the low then impact could be severe.

I will be keeping a very close eye on the conditions and in regular touch with the EA/Thames and keeping fingers firmly crossed.

If the worst does happen then there is not that much we can do as with the experience in 2011. What we will need is if anyone is local to get to the river and see what's going on, take pictures, video, report back for the TAC. As little or as much as you can do. I am working, well last 2 days so will make my excuses but may need a pair of Welles.

All updates through this thread.

Let's keep it all crossed for a quiet week.

I will likely be in Kingston this weekend, so if the dreaded event happens, will be on hand to photograph the evidence.

Let's hope for heavy rain in the West and a few showers over London.

Let's hope we get a deluge! Flows are fast approaching the near non-existent levels of 2011 Sad

Well it certainly threw a fair few millimeters down last night... lights, camera, action!

I shouldn't joke really, but we do need some water on that river, if not flooding the STWs.

we had some storm last night in Folkestone I have never seen anything like it.
22.1 mm of rain in 1 hour
floods and rising water in Folkestone.
next door neighbour got a 20ft tree branch in his garden.
I bet the royal military canal has risen.

Couple of bolts were very close last night, you just have to trust your card ain't marked, buzzzzzzz, crackle and pop!

That would have ruined your hair-do Keith!

Hammersmith overflowed mid afternoon but into a huge tide, feels like we got out jail today more by luck than judgement.

Continuing to monitor the situation.

Looking very dodgy for saturday people, heard the weather guys issue a "severe lightning damage" warning. Never heard that one before. Any how this stormy thing appears to be coming from france but the weather guessers cant be sure of time or position. Heisenbergs uncertainty principle methinks. Look out.
