COASTGUARD UPDATE:

Portland coastguard have told us that high tide times for Portland will be 12.47am tonight - shortly past midnight - and 1.26pm tomorrow.

They said tide times for Weymouth will also be very similar.

A spokesperson added: "What's interesting is that we have got coastguard patrols out and about and it seems there has not been as many people out watching the waves which is, of course, a good thing.

"We continue to urge people to stay away from coastal areas when it is windy and rough, because you not only have the risk of being hit by waves but also being blown into water by strong winds and the added risk of cliff falls."

Dorset residents are being urged to prepare for more severe weather this weekend.

The Met Office is warning that gale force winds and waves, coupled with heavy rainfall, are due to hit the county tonight (7 February) and on Saturday (8 February).

Dorset’s multi-agency weather taskforce, including Dorset County Council, is again asking residents to be prepared by securing their property to prevent winds ripping items up and causing more damage.

Rainfall of between 12-15 mm is expected, which will also increase the risk of flooding.

Residents in Chiswell, Portland should particularly be on alert and ready to evacuate. Locals are reminded to put flood boards in and window shutters in place.

Simon Parker, Dorset County Council’s emergency planning officer said:

“You can help make sure your home is protected by securing garden furniture and clearing drainage ditches. If you can, move possessions, including cars, to a higher location and, if possible, stay upstairs during a storm.”

“If you do need to evacuate your home it can be easy to forget important items, such as prescription medicines. Please make sure you remember to take your medication with you.”

Agencies including Dorset County Council, the Environment Agency, town, parish, district and borough councils, the NHS, Highways Agency, utility companies and the emergency services are all working together to support local communities.

 

For more information call Floodline on 0345 9881188.

LANDSLIPS

People are also being advised to take extra care along cliffs and beaches. Landslides often take place after wet weather as there is a delay in the rainwater falling and soaking into the ground. With the continuing wet weather more landslides are expected.

Simon Parker added:

“Despite several warnings, we are still hearing reports of people walking through floodwater and getting too close while wave watching. We can’t stress the danger people are putting themselves, and rescuers, in. For their own safety, we are asking people to comply with warning signs and officials’ advice.”

A spokesman for the Met said: "Following the heavy rain that occurred on Thursday night another band of rain, heavy at times, accompanied by coastal gales will affect southwest England during Friday evening, moving quickly east across other southern areas early on Saturday.

"The rain will clear the extreme southeast of England on Saturday morning, to be followed by frequent heavy and squally showers.

"The public should be prepared for disruption due to flooding."

There will then be a Yellow weather warning for rain until 11.45pm on Saturday.

The AMBER weather warning for wind will be in effect from 8pm- tonight unitl 6am on SUNDAY morning.

 

A spokesman said: "Southerly gales will affect south facing coasts of southwest England and south and west Wales during Friday evening, moving east along English Channel coasts overnight into Saturday.

"After a short lull, winds will increase from the southwest during the course of Saturday with severe gales affecting coastal districts, bringing gusts of 60-70 mph and isolated 80 mph at the most exposed locations within the Amber warning area. Large waves are also expected to affect southwest facing coasts. Further inland, gusts of 50-60 mph are likely.

"The public should be prepared for disruption to transport and locally to power supplies, particularly when combined with the impacts of heavy rainfall (see heavy rain warnings).

Dorchester weatherman John Oliver, who has been monitoring the weather for more than 50 years, has sent in some recent rainfall figures.

Dorset Echo:

He said: “Rainfall in the 24 hours until 9am this morning totalled 26.9mm, and has brought the total for the last eight weeks to a staggering 517.5mm, or 20.37 inches - 51% of the average for a whole year.

“It is now the wettest winter period – which is classed as December, January and February - since before records began in 1896.

“The total is even more remarkable given the fact there is still three weeks of February to run and that the first eleven days of December were dry.

“There have only been five rainless days in the county town since December 12th.”
