Parts of Kent have been put on flood alert as official warnings are released.
A flood alert is in force for areas near the River Beult, between Headcorn and Pluckley. Flooding could affect Headcorn, Smarden, Collier Street and Benover.
The River Darent is also under threat - from Westerham to Dartford, including Brasted, Sundridge, Chipstead, Dunton Green, Otford, Eynsford and South Darenth.
And the Sheppey rivers are subject to an alert. Areas affected are Scrapsgate Drain from the B2008 to the sea, through Minster and Scrapsgate and the Warden Bay Drain from Bay View to the sea, including Warden and surrounding holiday villages.
The Environment Agency has issued several warnings across the south-east as heavy rain fell over the weekend. Many warnings are still in place this morning.
Last week the organisation warned that Britain's unusually wet summer could mean flooding this winter.
The wettest April to June on record and further wet weather from July-October has left river levels full, the ground saturated and ground waters in some areas exceptionally high.
It says this situation means it might only take relatively little levels of rain for flooding to occur.
