A “major operation” is underway to clear up damage from torrential rain in south west England over the weekend – with forecasters predicting a drier and milder week ahead.
Parts of Scotland and northern England saw heavy snow, while floods induced by heavy rain forced the evacuation of homes in Devon on Sunday.
Five flood warnings for people to take “immediate action” remain in Northampton, Wiltshire, Cornwall, Herefordshire and Somerset.
There are a further 61 flood alerts across the UK, urging people to “be prepared”, but no weather warnings.
Forecasters are predicting a milder and drier week, with temperatures rising to double figures – potentially as high as 14C in Bristol and London and 13C in Newcastle – on Tuesday.
“As we get towards the end of the week, things do get cooler but not as cold as we have had.”
Temperatures are expected to lower to between 8C and 10C by the end of the week.
“We are looking at a fairly unsettled picture as we go through the week,” the spokeswoman said.
“It will be changeable but in between that there are some sunny spells.”
The north west could see heavy showers, possibly with hail and thunder, on Wednesday.
There is potential for snow over higher ground in the north at the end of the week.
On Sunday, people were forced to flee homes in Kentisbury, near Barnstaple, and other properties were flooded in Combe Martin on nearby Exmoor.
“There is now a major operation underway by @DevonCC and our contractor #Skanska please drive carefully as sweepers, JCBs etc will be in our roads working,” she tweeted.
In Somerset, Cheddar Gorge remains closed to traffic.
Trains are unable to operate between Porth and Treherbert in south Wales due to a landslip, National Rail said.
