Thames river levels slowly falling in Kingston but expected to rise again next week, warns Environment Agency
River levels are expected to rise again tomorrow and next week in Kingston after today's reprieve from heavy rain.
There remains a flood warning for the Thames between Raven's Ait and Teddington by the Environment Agency with more showers expected on Sunday.
But levels have been falling and are not expected to be as high as the start of last week.
The Agency's flood warning said: "River levels on the Thames at Kingston have been slowly falling since the high levels seen on Monday.
"Levels are still very high and are expected to rise again in response to the rain falling today. River levels are expected to rise again from Sunday onwards and into next week.
"Maximum river levels are forecast not to exceed levels seen at the beginning of this week but only if we have no further heavy rain after Saturday.
"Some isolated property flooding is still possible and ongoing disruption to low lying roads is expected.
"The weather prospects are to expect further rain this evening and overnight, which will be heavy at times. More showers, lighter in nature, are forecast for tomorrow."
