The Environment Agency warned there is a risk of surface water and river flooding this weekend across England and Wales, particularly in the Midlands and north east England.
Emergency teams from the Environment Agency will be out in force throughout the weekend to shore up defences, monitor river levels and clear blockages from watercourses.
Those in areas at risk should check the Environment Agency website for the latest information - environment-agency.gov.uk/flood - and sign up for free flood warnings on the Environment Agency's website or by calling the Environment Agency Flood Line on 0845 988 1188.
The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings and flood alerts across the UK.
Milder temperatures overnight will cause snow to thaw rapidly, with heavy rain expected to bring the risk of flooding in England and Wales.
