Snow forecast to follow deluge of rain in Lincolnshire
Homes have been flooded with sewage while driving conditions were made treacherous by persistent heavy rain in Lincolnshire.
The deluge has seen roads closed and gritting teams deployed to treat many wet surfaces.
Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue received 22 flood-related calls and attended 15 incidents since midnight on Christmas Eve.
This included two calls on Christmas Day, to incidents in Aunby and Heighington.
The Met Office's latest figures show that 92.2 mm of rain fell in Lincolnshire between December 1 and 26, compared to a 52.9mm average for the whole month.
Forecaster Charles Powell said snow could be a possibility towards the end of January.
"Eastern parts of the country tends to be drier than the west," he said.
"But the figures for December show that Lincolnshire, like in many parts of the UK, has had more rain than expected.
"Now, conditions should be slightly more settled.
"This won't be heralding a major change but it will be a welcome blip.
"Towards the end of the month, the weather looks like turning a little bit colder, with possibly snow."
