Risk of flooding from groundwater remains
In Hampshire, continuing minor river flooding is expected from the River Test in Romsey, the Somborne Stream in Kings Somborne and from the rivers Itchen and Meon.
Groundwater levels also remain exceptionally high across much of the south of England, causing a continued risk of flooding around Croydon as well as in Hambledon, Basingstoke and Lower Farringdon in Hampshire, where properties could see more flooding this week.
High groundwater levels are also increasing the flood risk in parts of Dorset, Wiltshire, West Sussex, West Berkshire, South Gloucestershire, Kent, Surrey and Brighton and Hove. The Environment Agency is supporting local authorities and utility companies as they respond to incidents of groundwater flooding.
At 1200 there is one severe flood warning, 18 flood warnings and 97 flood alerts in place.
With no heavy rainfall forecast for the south of England this week water levels are expected to fall in flood affected areas, helping to lower flood risk.
