The Met office have a 'Yellow' warning in force for the region on Monday.
They have now increased the warning, for North Yorkshire & County Durham, to 'Amber'.
The warnings work on a 3-tier system in terms of how likely the event is to happen and what impact that will have on those that could be affected. Yellow means 'Be Aware" , Amber means 'Be Prepared' and Red means "Take Action'.
Despite last night's rain moving into the North Sea another area of rain is expected to move in during the early hours of Monday.
The ground is already saturated. Another 20-40mm could fall (in excess of this for the Amber Alert area). This could lead to further flooding and driving conditions for the Monday morning rush hour are expected to be difficult if not dangerous.
