The Flood Forecasting Centre (FFC) provides the Flood Guidance Statement (FGS) to the government and Category 1 and 2 responders in England and Wales to assist in planning and preparing for flooding.

Our products are key elements of the wider suite of rainfall and flood products delivered by the Met Office, Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales. We have a poster containing details about our products (PDF, 81 kB).

The Flood Forecasting Centre also provides a range of hydromet services direct to the Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales. We also provide the UK Coastal Monitoring and Forecasting Service (UKCMF) for the Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Rivers Agency in Northern Ireland (DARDNI).

Flood Forecasting Centre services are also available online at Met Office Hazard Manager.
