FLOODING of property is still expected in prone areas of Worcester with more rain to come, particularly at the weekend.

Worcestershire is predicted to miss out on rain and snow that are causing yellow and amber weather warnings in Scotland and the north east of England but bits of rainfall may add to problem areas alongside the River Severn.

The Flood Warning Information Service (FWIS) says levels “remain high” at the Diglis river gauge with “flooding of property, roads and farmland expected to continue”.

Quay Street, South Quay, Diglis Avenue and Hood Street are expected to be worst hit with Pitchcroft Lane, Waterworks Road, Newport Street, Croft Road, Diglis Dock Road, Diglis Lane and Diglis Avenue also in the firing line.

“Flooding of property, roads and farmland is expected to continue” farther south at Court Meadow Caravan Park with a predicted peak of 6.55m to 6.65m anticipated at Kempsey Yacht Club this afternoon (Wednesday, February 3).

At Saxons Lode, levels are said to be “falling very slowly” with property at Hanley Road, Upton, the Hanley Road itself, Hanley Castle and Saxons Lode still affected.

FWIS adds: “Further rain is forecast over the next 48 hours. We are closely monitoring the situation.

“Our incident response staff are checking defences. Please plan driving routes to avoid low lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded.”


There are sporadic spells of rain expected in Worcester over the next few days but a 50 per cent chance of snow is forecast throughout the day on Sunday.

Temperatures are expected to remain just above freezing but it will feel colder in places, making for bracing conditions for those heading out.
