Heavy rain is predicted in Northampton in the next couple of days with the dry weather not set to return until Friday, local forecasters have said.
Mike Lewis, station manager at Pitsford Hall Weather Station, said it was an “unsettled outlook” across the county today and this was likely to remain for much of the week ahead.
Mr Lewis said: “Rain will return to all areas during Tuesday evening and overnight. Lows will fall just a couple of degrees to 11C. Winds will be gentle to moderate and from the north-east.
“Wednesday is likely to prove wet, with drier conditions coming through during the evening. Highs of 14C, falling overnight to 11C. The wind will tend to ease, but will remain north-easterly.”
The Environment Agency has also issued flood warnings for neighbouring counties.
The Met Office has said up to 70mm (2.76in) of rain is expected in worst-hit areas including parts of Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire and the Humber.
The Environment Agency has warned of a flood risk in the east, mainly from surface water and low-lying rivers.
