The deluge of rain continues to affect roads, traffic and trains in the area heading into Monday evening.
There is flooding in the Selby area, however the A19 at Chapel Haddlesey and the B1222 at Cawood Bridge are open as normal.
There is localised flooding in Saxton but the roads are passable with care.
The roads in and around Appleton Roebuck also remain open despite some standing water.
The river Ouse in Selby was at 5pm recorded at a height of 4.01 metres, some way short of its highest ever recorded level of 5.87m back in 2006.
Trains passing through Selby have been heavily affected, with all services operating on the line between Doncaster and York being cancelled earlier today and replaced by a bus service.
Normal service was later resumed although with large delays to planned timetables.
Chief Superintendent Sue Day, of North Yorkshire Police, is co-ordinating the multi-agency flood response.
She said: “All partner agencies are working hard to get the road networks opened up and to help people to protect their property from flood water.
“At present, we do not believe the flood situation is anywhere near as bad as what we experienced in September. However, we have the necessary preparations and contingencies in place should the conditions deteriorate.
“As always, we advise motorists to take extreme care and not to drive on roads and bridges that are closed. Please check the available traffic and travel information before setting out on journeys.
“Please also keep well clear of flowing water. This includes keeping pets away from this potential danger.”

Elsewhere, fire crews were called out to Saxton in the early hours of Sunday morning as a deluge of rain hit the region.
A crew from Tadcaster were called out shortly after 3am after ditches and fields were hit by the floods, before spilling out onto Main Street.
A pipe also collapsed in a ditch leading to houses and garages in the area being affected.
Sandbags were deployed by houses that were vulnerable before Saxton Lane to Main Street was later closed as a result.
A crew from Selby then took over until mid-day on Sunday as a spokesman confirmed levels “remained steady”.
On Monday afternoon, North Yorkshire Police said there was only “localised flooding at Saxton but roads are passable with care.”
Humberside Fire and Rescue Service also issued a flood update with spokesman Simon Anfield warning: “Although there is rain predicted tonight (Monday), it will be less than yesterday.
“Today we have an improved situation and river levels are dropping.
“Residents are urged to remain vigilant and if they suspect their home may be a risk of flooding to contact us.”
“Residents are also urged to take extra care when driving on the regions roads as in some area they may be some surface water.”
The Environment Agency said on Monday it is monitoring river levels, clearing blockages and operating pumping stations to try to manage river levels.
This is the latest flooding risk to hit the area. Back in September a bridge only five miles from Saxton was forced to close due to severe flooding.
Meanwhile some areas of Brayton were also affected by the weather with reports of minor flooding to garages.
