River Levels and Weather Forecast - Yorkshire Dales
« on: February 23, 2016, 03:12:04 pm »
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).
 
River Ribble Weir Webcam at Settle :  http://settlehydro.hubexpert.com:8080/shcamweir.php
 
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 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
 
Yorkshire Dales Weather Forecast:  http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/mountain-forecasts/yorkshire-dales#?tab=mountainWeather
 
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

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.

Thanks MarkS - the Gaugemap site looks excellent. 

For JAA the Upper Swale link is:

River Swale - Keld

It's been down for a number of days. This happens from time to time but they usually get it fixed. It is an immensely valuable resource, particularly to cavers and to paddlers.
