Storms and heavy rain are forecast across west London for the coming days as the Environment Agency continues to monitor river levels in Uxbridge and West Drayton.

At RAF Northolt in West End Road, Ruislip, Met Office staff recorded 321.5mm of rain water for December, January and February - a new record with two weeks left of the month still to go.

With 173.3mm of rainfall in January, it was recorded as the wettest month since records began in 1948, with the previous wettest January in 1995 recording 136.9mm of rain.

 

Weather reports predict storms on Wednesday and later this week so the Environment Agency has warned that river levels that have begun to stabilised may rise again in the next few days.

A Flood Warning is still in place on the River Colne at Willowbank, near to St John's Road in the Uxbridge Moor area.

This morning (Tuesday) the Environment Agency said : "The river remains very high and out of banks in many locations.

"The property flooding was a result of storm drainage water being unable to discharge into the watercourse due to high river levels. We have raised this issue with Thames Water.

"Heavy showers are forecast for today and Wednesday, with unsettled rainfall for the remainder of the week."

The River Colne and Fray's River in West Drayton have been issued a Flood Warning, with the river bursting its banks in a number of places.

"We expect these rivers to stay high for several days," the Environment Agency said.

"If levels on the River Thames continue to rise this could further increase river levels on the River Colne as it will be unable to discharge."

A Severe Flood Warning remains in force for the River Thames at Staines and Egham.
