Heavy storms and rain expected
The Meteorological Office has put out a severe weather warning for the southeast of England with up to two inches of rain predicted.
Weather forecasters say a low-pressure system is bringing rain and strong winds from the North Atlantic.
It is expected to linger over the area all weekend but clear by Sunday evening to be replaced by clearer more settled weather by Monday.
In Warrengate Road, skips and sandbags still reflect the damage of the October floods.
Many homes bordering Mimmshall Brook are protected with sandbags piled against doors and drives, however water levels seem to be almost back to normal and the brook would need to rise almost two metres before it breaks its banks.
Some residents were forced to evacuate the area to stay with friends and relatives when Mimmshall Brook broke its banks after the worst weather to hit the area for almost 15 years.
