The Environment Agency has issued a flood alert for the Eastern Yar and its tributaries, running from Whitwell to Bembridge.
25mm of rain was recorded at Knighton yesterday (Monday) with further rain expected late on Wednesday and into Thursday.
Water levels in the Eastern Yar remain high but are now slowly falling. However, at Langbridge and Alverstone, water will still be close to the top of the river bank. Some ponded water will continue to affect low lying land.
The river is expected to have some time to recover before the next band of rain, with levels set to reduce by 0.5m before Wednesday evening.
Locals are being told to expect the river to be higher than normal over the next few days, with road flooding possible at Sandown.
