An 11-hour weather warning has been put in place as heavy rain is expected to hit Kent this evening.
The Met Office has issued the yellow alert for the whole of the county from 4pm until 3am tomorrow morning.
It predicts disruption to buses and trains, and flooding on roads making journey times longer.
