There are six flood warnings in place today with more rain forecast this afternoon.

The warnings include the Thames at Abingdon where the Environment Agency says flooding of property, roads and low lying land is expected overnight and tomorrow (February 23).

Areas most at risk are properties on Bridge Street, East St Helens Street and St Helens Wharf. 

However, peak levels are not currently expected to be as high as those seen last month.

River levels have risen today on River Evenlode, River Windrush and the River Glyme at Woodstock and the EA said a warning may be issued for these rivers later.

There are also 42 flood alerts in the wider area, where some flooding is possible.

This includes the River Cherwell and its tributaries from Lower Heyford down to Oxford.

Flooding of low lying land and roads is expected to continue today, particularly around Thrupp but property flooding is not currently expected in this area, said the EA.

The weather forecast is for dry conditions and sunny spells this morning but scattered showers, some falling heavy and with a chance of hail, this afternoon.
