Torrential rain expected for 24 hours, with Yorkshire, the north-east, Midlands and East Anglia likely to be hit hard.
Severe flood warnings have been issued in the north and east of England, the Midlands and much of Wales, with non-stop torrential rain expected for the next 24 hours and into Saturday in what forecasters are predicting could be the most serious weather conditions yet this year.
The Environment Agency warned already sodden areas of the country to prepare for further heavy rain, after forecasts warned that a month's rain could fall over 24 hours, as heavy showers swept across the UK.
The agency has opened emergency incident rooms and has teams out on the ground checking on flood defences and clearing any blockages in order to reduce the risk of flooding as much as possible.
