Villages that could be affected include Collingham, North and South Scarle, Normanton-on-Trent and North and South Clifton.
The Environment Agency said: "River levels remain high at the Torksey river gauge as a result of high tides coinciding with high river levels. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland remains possible.
"We are closely monitoring the situation.
"Please plan driving routes to avoid low-lying roads near rivers, which may be flooded and avoid using low-lying footpaths near local watercourses."
