It means flooding is possible and people should prepare for that eventuality.

River Trent, what to expect:

River levels remain high at the Colwick river gauge as a result of recent heavy rainfall. Consequently, flooding of roads and farmland continues.

Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads including communities near to the River Trent, the Queens Drive Park and Ride and Stoke Lane at Stoke Bardolph, from Caythorpe to Hoveringham, and cellars of low-lying properties at Cavendish Bridge.

Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point.

River Trent Tributaries, what to expect:

River levels are forecast to rise at the Lowdham Grange river gauge, and other watercourses in the area.

Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads around the tributaries of the Trent in Nottinghamshire, the River Greet, Potwell Dyke, Dover Beck, Cocker Beck, Thurgarton Beck and others.

Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point.

River Maun, what to expect:

River levels are forecast to rise at the Whitewater Bridge river gauge.

Areas most at risk are low-lying agricultural land and roads around Mansfield, the Sherwood Forest Caravan Park at Clipstone, Edwinstowe, Ollerton, Whitewater Lane at Whitewater Bridge and West Drayton.

Flooding of properties is not forecast at this point.
