River levels

On Sunday afternoon, the Environment Agency expected the river in York to rise approximately 4.5 m above normal summer levels.

It arrived at 4.36 m at 13:30, then started to fall and then to get up again.

The next 24 hours are difficult to predict due to the anticipated rain and snow.

It is possible that it can go back to 4.6 – 4.7 on Monday morning.

It rose to 4.41 m during Storm Dennis and 5.4 m in 2000

Once again the focus of the City of York council will keep water out of other properties.

The city of York remains open to business.

If you were thinking of postponing a trip this week, this video shows how the floods are on one level and the main streets of the city are much higher.

Traders and tourist attractions will welcome you warmly.
