With winter approaching and the red and yellow board dusted off by lock-keepers, now is the time to receive email alerts when conditions change on stretches of the non-tidal Thames that are of interest.
The EA stopped their email alerting system some tine ago but you can still get alerts for one or more stretches.
Just install the free IFTTT app (search your app store) and then head to my list of lock conditions warnings and select as many as interest you.
Then, whenever a change is published you will receive an alert (by email and on your Apple Watch if you have one; but it works on all platforms so the watch is optional!).

River has risen quite a bit in the last couple of hours, Rascal Joe looks a bit tight on its lines.
