Derbyshire is being warned that up to a month's rain could fall over the next 24 hours.
Over 80 flood alerts have been issued across England and Wales as TWO bands of very heavy rain move across the UK.
The Highways Agency have advised road users to check the weather forecast and road conditions before travelling as heavy rain is forecast during the day and into the weekend.
Tony Waters, Deputy Chief Forecaster at the Met Office, said: "We are expecting spells of very heavy and thundery rain across a wide area of the UK in the next few days, with worst affected spots likely to be in central and northern parts of the country.
"Rainfall totals could be 20-40mm widely across warning areas, but some places could see around 100mm of rain through Friday and into Saturday. Given the saturated ground from the record rainfall in June, this could cause significant disruption - including difficult driving conditions and flooding in some areas."
Chesterfield Borough Council Leader John Burrows spoke to Peak FM about the precautions in place locally.
