The Hydrological Outlook for March has been published

Mar 14, 2016

 

The outlook for March is for the continuation of above normal river flows and groundwater levels across large parts of western Britain in response to wet weather in February and throughout the winter.  Further south and east, groundwater levels are expected to remain above normal in central southern England; otherwise river flows and groundwater levels are likely to be within the normal range.  Rainfall projections suggest that there is a slightly higher chance that spring will be wet than dry (this signal is stronger still for March).  Despite this, the three-month outlook suggests that normal to below normal river flows are likely for most regions of the UK (albeit there is some uncertainty for parts of western Britain) and there is an increased likelihood of below normal groundwater levels in parts of eastern England.
