Flood warnings remain in place along parts of the River Trent, but levels were "stabilising", officials said.
Incidents of flooding have been limited, officials said
The Environment Agency has issued warnings for the River Trent at Farndon, Sawley and Newark.
They have also warned against wading through flooded areas due to the possibility of contamination.
An agency spokesman said the situation was stable across the East Midlands. Light overnight rain had not caused too many problems, he added.
Kelham Bridge in Newark remains closed and police are asking drivers to adhere to the road closure signs.
Flood warnings are also in place on the River Trent at Newark Cattle Market and Tolney Lane and Trentlock.
Environment Agency spokesman John Baker said: "The weather forecast is reasonable, we are still keeping a close eye on the situation.
"There are some properties in the region that have been flooded - but very few," he said.
