Flooding is expected across some areas in the UK this week, the Environment Agency has warned.

The EA said local coastal flooding was probable for the River Wye estuary on Monday and Tuesday. It added flooding was also possible but not expected in the South West and the North of England until Tuesday.

The government agency also said that local flooding from rivers and surface water was possible but not expected for many parts of England on Wednesday and possible on Thursday. It added that land, roads, and some properties would flood, and there would be travel disruption as a result.

It comes after the Met Office issued two yellow weather warnings for rain across parts of England and the EA said there were 75 flood warnings and 262 flood alerts by Saturday evening. The Met Office also issued a yellow weather warning for rain covering the East Midlands, the East of England, the North East and Yorkshire and the Humber, which ran through to Sunday noon.

It warned that “some flooding is likely” and there could be transport disruption as many areas will see 10-15mm of rain, with the wettest spots getting 25-30mm. This is falling on already saturated ground.
