Most of the West Midlands saw heavy rain this morning, but the good news is the next few days are looking a lot drier.
Many of us will see some light showers over the next seven days, but nothing like the downpour we've seen today and the Met Office hasn't got any weather warnings for the region after today.
The bad news is more rain has to wash down the rivers from Wales and the north of England, so the Environment Agency says levels won't peak until Friday and are likely to remain high for some time.
"Appalling" conditions have been seen across the West Midlands region as about one to two inches of rain has fallen today, said the Environment Agency.
The rain has led to some "very serious surface water flooding", said the agency's Dave Throup.
The prospects for the next few days are "very difficult to tell as the water is running off so quickly", he added.
"Going forward the River Severn, Avon and River Teme - we're likely to be issuing more warnings as we go through the next 24 to 48 hours."
Rain should eventually clear later but not before causing more flooding across the West Midlands, the Met Office is warning.
A yellow warning for rain remains in place until the end of the day.
There are now more than 100 schools closed across the West Midlands.
In some cases it's because the school itself is affected, but in many cases it's because of flooding on surrounding roads.
And parents are being advised to look out for more closures on Friday.
Schools across Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire are closing today due to flooding:
- Luston Primary, near Leominster, is closed due to both ends of the village being impassable

- Brailes Primary School, in Lower Brailes, is also closed
More flood warnings and alerts are expected across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire and Shropshire as heavy rain continues, said the Environment Agency.
The agency's Dave Throup said there had been heavy rain, in particular over the River Teme in Shropshire and Herefordshire and the Avon catchment in Warwickshire.
"Those rivers are responding pretty quickly," he said.
"There's a lot of standing water and it's only going one way - into the river system.
"We're going to see quite a few more more alerts and warnings through the course of today and then right through the weekend as it works its way into the already full River Severn.
"The ground is - we're calling it - super-saturated, you just can't get any more water in. So even small amounts of rainfall are coming straight off and ponding on the roads."
Nearly 30 roads in Worcestershire have been closed due to high flood water.
The council has issued this list.
And in Herefordshire there are problems on the A4110 at Canon Pyon; the B4348 at Allensmore-Dorstone; A438 at Whitney-on-Wye; and A438 near Portway Inn.
Flood water has also started to cause problems on roads further north, in Shropshire.
There are reports of disruption on both the A49 in the county and on the A456.

With river levels expected to continue rising over the next 24 hours, the Environment Agency says it is setting up flood barriers at Frankwell in Shrewsbury and Severnside North in Bewdley.
The flood gates at Upton upon Severn in Worcestershire are closed, excluding Dunn's Lane, and the Kempsey pumping station is also operational.
Dave Throup from the Environment Agency says the area expected to be worst hit by flooding is now likely to be further south than first thought - meaning parts of Herefordshire and Worcestershire will be the hardest hit.

There'll be no Brexit Party candidates standing in Shropshire, Herefordshire or Worcestershire, in the general election, following an announcement by party leader Nigel Farage this morning.
In Warwickshire, just the one seat will be contested by the party - Warwick and Leamington.
However, the party will still stand in seats held by other parties - seats the Tories need to win to claim a majority in Parliament.
Conservative Chairman James Cleverly said there was still a "danger" the Brexit Party could split the vote in target seats, leading to the election of MPs who could "frustrate the Brexit process".
Labour Party chairman Ian Lavery said the Brexit party was a "Thatcherite 1980s tribute act" which he said "would lead to more savage Tory attacks on working class communities".
Homes and businesses could be flooded and travel disrupted by heavy rain across the West Midlands the Met Office is warning.
