Lot of surface water, not been home too long after coming home on the bus. Don't think it's gonna flood from the river (though is getting high)

Looks like we're just coming out of the thick band of cloud now, might even get a bit of sunshine soon.:)

 

No doubt the surface water will continue to make it's way to the water courses for a while though, so fingers crossed.

If you want to look see.

 

Ouch, that does not look far off bursting. I'm at greystones and the rain keeps easing then opening back up again and there is a hell of a lot of surface water heading down to the Porter

Traffics busy in the area due to the standing water but I crossed the river on Meadowhall Way and it was swollen but looked to be coping ok at the moment. The road under the railway bridge on Upwell Street is flooded but it always seems to there due to poor drainage.

Perhaps the webcam is misleading. It's about 2 ft below the concrete barrier on which the railing is standing.
