The Lower Welland area, which runs from Surfleet down to the Deepings, has seen heavy rainfall over the last 24 hours.

The alert states: "This means that the Lower River Welland is now rising, which will lead to flooding of low lying land and roads close to the river from the afternoon of Monday, February 17, onwards.

"We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days. Our forecasts indicate that flooding to properties isn't likely and therefore flood warnings are not expected to be issued. Please avoid using low lying footpaths near local watercourses and plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded. We are constantly monitoring river levels, and have staff in the field checking for blockages and clearing weedscreens. This message will be updated during Tuesday, February 18, or as the situation changes."

Heavy rain has also been seen in the South Forty Foot Drain which means the watercourse is rising..

The alert says: "We expect the river to remain high throughout the next few days."

An alert was in place yesterday morning for the Bourne Eau system, which covers Pode Hole and Pinchbeck area.
