The Environment Agency has issued more than 100 flood alerts today, covering large parts of central and south England.
Twenty-three more serious flood warnings have been placed in areas of the south-west and the Midlands.
However, the agency said on its website that the forecast risk of flooding across England and Wales is "very low".
The Met Office has issued yellow weather warnings affecting much of England, Scotland and Wales, because of the danger of ice following the snow.
Parts of the country will be waking up to snow this morning, prompting fears of ice and disruption during rush hour.
The AA’s Special Operations Response Team has said that continual bad weather in the UK has caused more problems for drivers:
The Environment Agency has begun to increase the number of flood alerts across the UK. The agency has issued 12 flood warnings, where flooding is expected and 106 flood alerts, where flooding is possible after wet weather caused several isolated instances of flooding across the UK.

A senior weather forecaster with MeteoGroup has said that snow has begun to fall across the UK. Paul Mott from the weather division of the Press Association said:
"We are starting to see some snow in the south Midlands and over the hills of Surrey. There was snow earlier today over parts of Scotland and north-west England, mostly over the hills.
"We expect to see snow over northern parts of southern England, north of London, up towards the Midlands, and North Wales, and there are likely to be 2cm-5cm of snow in places overnight."
Snow began falling in parts of southern England this evening, prompting fears of ice and disruption in the Monday morning rush hour.
There was expected to be a covering of up to 6 cms (2.4 ins) in some areas. The falls are expected to stop by tomorrow morning, but the accumulations could cause disruption for commuters.
More light flurries are predicted for tomorrow and Tuesday, after which the week is expected to turn milder.
A burst of snow is likely to cover much of Britain today, with ice and disruption probable in several regions.
Nick Prebble, a forecaster for MeteoGroup, the weather division of the Press Association, said:
"A band of light rain will move from the south-west in a north-eat direction over north England and west Scotland.
"This will linger before turning to quite a significant fall of snow in the early evening, pretty much everywhere will get a couple of cms of snow, and up to six cms on higher ground, including the Pennines and Scottish mountains.
"The south-west of England, south-west of Wales and Northern Ireland will be the only areas to miss the snow.
"There is the potential for more heavier snow, but it is going to be quite disruptive anyway."
