Flood Warnings Issued Across England

England is under multiple flood warnings due to the transition from snow to heavy rain.
Thirty-six warnings indicate expected flooding, particularly in Dorset, Somerset, and the Midlands, disrupting rail services amid ongoing strikes.

The RAC advises caution on icy roads come Wednesday, with potential breakdown increases, especially in older or malfunctioning vehicles.

Additionally, 160 flood alerts signal possible flooding throughout England.

Train services between Edinburgh and Newcastle face blockages from severe flooding compounded by strikes. CrossCountry Trains outlines that this disruption coincides with the latest Aslef strike actions at C2C and Greater Anglia, slated to last until December 8, accompanied by an overtime ban until December 9.

Network Rail reports that trains in western England are gradually resuming schedules as floodwaters recede. The flooding has impacted routes between Bristol Parkway, Swindon, Westbury, and Taunton. Some services might face cancellations or delays.

In Somerset, flooding prompted delayed school openings and closures, with local councils responding to numerous incidents. One incident saw firefighters rescuing a driver from floodwaters in Buttsbury Wash near Billericay.

Warwickshire's River Swift in Rugby remains under a flood warning, and while the River Alne's warning persists, the risk is diminishing.

Road closures from floods affected Dorset's A35 and prompted an emergency closure in Alsager, Cheshire (A50 Linley Lane).

The Met Office indicates rain will lessen through Tuesday but expects cold conditions and wintry showers in the north. A yellow rain warning is set for South West England on Thursday until 15:00.

The forecast for snow lessens toward week's end, mainly affecting Scotland's mountains, while Cumbria deals with the aftermath of the weekend snowfall. An ice warning affects Central, Tayside, Fife, Grampian, South West Scotland, and Lothian Borders until 11:00 on Wednesday.
