Welcome to the Essex Weather and Flood Forecasting Centre
At the Essex Weather and Flood Forecasting Centre we deliver comprehensive local forecasts and warnings specifically for the people of Essex. Our team gather data from weather stations on land and sea, satellites, radar and computer models so that we can produce the best possible forecast.
Detailed, unbiased weather and flood forecasts are available on our web site and on local radio stations across Essex. Updated twice daily, we provide coverage of 40 towns using high resolution output from both the Met Office and European (ECMWF) computer model. In fact, we are one of only three web sites in the United Kingdom using this method for public weather forecasting.
