Residents living near the Thames are being advised to expect high levels of water to overflow onto low-lying roads and footpaths.

Water levels along the Thames will be high as a result of the spring tides.

From 4:15pm high tides in Richmond will be at 4.60m tonight (January 27) and it is expected to increase to 4.65m tomorrow.

Flooding of low-lying roads and footpaths is expected at these times, with conditions expected to last for at least one to two hours either side of high tide.

This means that there is a possibility of flooding for Thames Bank in Mortlake, Ranelagh Drive in Richmond, Friars Lane and Water Lane in Richmond, Putney Embankment, Chiswick Mall, The Embankment in Twickenham and the Towpath below Teddington Lock.

Flooding of properties is not expected.

The river flow at Teddington Weir is normal for this time of year at 149 cubic metres per second and is rising slowly.
