It comes amid predictions that bitter cold weather will largely stay the rest of the year as the chances of a White Christmas increase.

Low pressure will sweep across the Atlantic during the beginning of this week – marking the beginning of yet another nationwide scourge.

The Environment Agency has 69 flood warnings across England – as well as 103 warnings.

Matt Office meteorologist Craig Snell said: "There will be additional rain on Sunday, again with northern England and Scotland on the landing line for the heaviest falls.

"As of Tuesday next week, another low-pressure system is coming in from the southwest and this will bring more rain which could be problematic given the problems with flooding across parts of the country."

MORE OUT

He added: "We see more than what we have already seen, and the main risk is from rainfall, although it will be windy.

"It looks like we'll be back to a less talked-about timeline by mid-next week."

Forecasters say they are watching out for rainfalls across parts of the UK already under the feet of flood water.

Parts of the country may still be affected by the floods until Tuesday, according to the Environment Agency (EA).

MORE Flowers

Forecasting the risk of flooding in England, the EA says: "Floods of rivers are expected to continue in the Lower Don River Basin area of ​​South Yorkshire until at least Tuesday, where properties will continue to flood and there will be continued disruption to travel."

The EA says floods are expected to flood the Eesham rivers in Worcestershire and residents should be enclosed for occupation of property and travel disrupted.

He warns that local flooding of rivers is also "possible" in parts of South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and parts of the Midlands through Monday, and in Oxfordshire this weekend.

Temperatures will continue to rise tonight – trying to reach above single digits throughout the UK.

Mercury will dip to -5C in Scotland and northern England with the south facing the night in the lowest night of about -2C this week.

The wet weather will spill over into the middle of the week, with cold air colliding, bringing additional snow over high terrain, forecasters said.

More than 120,000 Britons are expected to stay in the cold as the boiler collapses over the next two weeks.

PARTS OF THE UNITED KINGDOM SUBMITS

Gloomy forecasts are coming as parts of the UK are already submerged – with floods spanning entire villages.

Villagers in Fishley, Yorkshire, which were partially disrupted by the floods, began clearing some of the damage yesterday, with little relief from the rain.

The village of Barden, near Lincoln, has also been cut off for days with roads completely impassable.

Families affected by the floods are facing greater Christmas misery, with warnings that the flooded terrain in some areas will not receive much rain.

Sean Curtin, executive director of flood management at the Environment Agency, said: "This was a phenomenally humid autumn – this is only the middle of November.

"I sound an alarm because we are in mid-November, everywhere is saturated, all floodplains are full.

"It's super sensitive to rain, so this winter we have to stay awake."

Matthew's office said it had been raining for a month, falling in the vicinity of Sheffield in the space of just 24 hours last week.

This was followed by a further 30-40mm drop on Thursday night.
