As always, use your own judgement but the above sites should help you to make an informed decision (coupled with knowledge of the flooding potential of the intended cave/pothole).
Interesting new changes. Thanks Mike
Excellent resource. Might it be worth including the Upper Swale at Park Bridge near Keld for cavers planning trips to Swaledale sites like Crackpot Cave and Cliff Force Cave?
Just a suggestion :)
. . . and just so everything's in one place, here's a reminder of the Cave Diving Group's resource which helps understand water conditions:
I find http://www.gaugemap.co.uk to be a useful resource. It's the same Envirnonment Agency data as for the links above, but handily on a map. You can also save the view for the area you're interested in.
