River Levels and Weather Forecast - Yorkshire Dales
« on: April 15, 2011, 03:49:06 pm »
Afternoon Folks
 
Whilst searching the web I came across a few sites that may be of use when deciding whether to do a particular cave or not:

The following sites show data provided by the Environment Agency for water levels on various rivers (click on the river name).
 
River Wharfe - Kettlewell
River Wharfe - Grassington
River Aire - Gargrave
River Nidd - Pateley Bridge
River Nidd - Gouthwaite
River Ribble - Langcliffe
River Ribble - Settle
River Wenning - Clapham / Ingleton
River Rawthay - Sedbergh
 
Use your own judgement but generally if the current water level is within the white or lower green areas things should be OK (but use the forecast below and nature of the cave/pothole when making a decision).  Exercise caution if in the upper green area and it's probably best to forget it (unless a known dry trip) if in the blue area.

Hi All

Following some changes to the Environment Agency website I've now updated the links to various river levels in the Yorkshire Dales (as below).

The following sites show data provided by the Environment Agency for water levels on various rivers for the last 5 days (click on the river name):

River Aire - Gargrave
River Nidd - Pateley Bridge
River Nidd - Gouthwaite
River Ribble - Langcliffe
River Ribble - Settle
River Wenning - Clapham / Ingleton
River Rawthay - Sedbergh

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).

Cheers.

Mike
