Watching the rowing club webcam what's the likely hood of localised flooding in and around the Park Inn?
We are. Heading up on Friday and stopping 3 nights and as it was going to sunny September get out about on Sunday and Monday.
The weather forecast on the weekend is looking good but but concerned on the River Ouse.

Just got back from day one of rehearsals and it's still raining...hasn't let up for two full days and a night now. The river Ouse is bound to pick up water from further upstream which will cause flooding later this week, I would imagine.
Our garden is like a small lake at the moment. It's cold and windy too. No sign of the Indian Summer we expected throughout September... :(

Roads from here to Leeds have tons of surface water, quite treacherous at times, lots of visibility problems with spray from trucks. If it's like this at the weekend, you'll need to take care and allow plenty of time driving to York for Nelsonica. Hopefully, the city won't be flooded, at least no more than usual in this sort of weather!
