Torrential downpours are expected across the West Midlands today with emergency services urging drivers to take extra care on the roads
Another wet 'summer's' day has also led to more calls from the Environment Agency for people to be prepared for flooding.
The warning relates to much of the Midlands, but particularly over Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, West Midlands and Warwickshire on Friday from early morning.
The Agency says the rain will fall on already saturated ground and could cause flooding from rivers.
Where there are heavy downpours we may also see surface water flooding, as the water is not able to go down the drains quickly enough.
