Flood warnings remain in place across the UK

Flood warnings are still in place this week following the torrential rainfall that's hit the UK over the last few days.

The principal area of concern is the River Don around Doncaster where severe river and surface water flooding impacts are possible but not expected this Thursday and Friday.

These warnings are in place due to the potential for heavy, persistent rain falling on saturated catchments in South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. Minor impacts are said to be 'probable' in places more widely across of England and Wales.

Today and tomorrow frequent showers will fall on saturated river catchments across the Yorkshire Pennines, Peak District, Staffordshire and Derbyshire. Minor river and surface water flooding impacts are probable in these areas.

Minor impacts are also possible but not expected in parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.
