It's a spring tide and here is the surge in real time at Yarmouth.

Luck that the wind has not come around to the North!

The salt barrier is up at the entrance to herbert woods boat yard, must be expecting a surge on the Thurne too.

Just got back to the boat at Oulton Broad.

I was talking to the harbourmasters, who are manning the station tonight, and they are baffled as well as to why only the southern rivers are effected.

Currently the water level on the salt side is not too bad, but it is high on the Broad, about 6" before it overtops the quay, and 4 hours to go before high tide.

The water level was fairly high at Potter this afternoon. It was just coming under the bungalows and onto the back path. I would not say this is particularly unusual at this time of year.
