The Environment Agency has warned of possible floods across much of Kent, including Maidstone.
"Flood Watch" alerts have been issued for most parts of the Medway, between Tonbridge and Yalding, through to Maidstone, and from Allington to Cuxton.
The alerts mean flooding of low-lying land and roads is expected in areas at risk. Those living or travelling in such areas are warned to "be aware and be prepared."
In Maidstone, tow paths on both sides of the river are completely submerged.
No official Flood Warnings, which advise people to "act now", have yet been issued for the area.
Flood Watches have also been issued for the River Teise between Lamberhurst and Yalding, and the River Beult from Pluckley and Bethersden to Yalding.
This risk is likely to increase over the weekend, with the Met Office having issued a Severe Weather Warning for the region on Sunday.
A prolonged spell of wet and windy weather is expected with heavy rain falling on already wet or saturated ground.
