It's turning brighter but cooler by the time we get to Saturday but between now and then we still have more rain on the way.

River levels are still rising and there are Flood Warnings in place from the Environment Agency across the East and West Midlands.

Low Pressure to the North East gave us the rain last night but it's a brighter picture for the rest of Thursday.
