Britain's wet weather misery is set to return as forecasts gloomily predict lashings of rain and strong winds for parts of the country.
After a dry period of respite for much of Britain on Wednesday, the wet weather will return this evening and get worse going into tomorrow as a slow-moving area of low pressure brings thundery showers and gusts.
The Environment Agency said: "The concern is now for Friday and Saturday when the forecast is for heavy rain."
Forecasters are urging people in Devon, Cornwall, west Somerset, North Wales and parts of the Midlands to remain prepared for the possibility of more floods and the Met Office has issued a weather warning for heavy rain.
Although there were heavy showers in parts of the South West, Wales and the North West, which were on flood alert, parts of the UK had some breathing space on Wednesday with clear skies in the South East and London.
Sky News weather presenter Nazaneen Ghaffar said: "Saturday will be an unsettled day over much of the UK with showers or longer spells of rain over central, western and northern parts.
"A deep area of low pressure will move eastwards across central areas causing some strong and gusty southwesterly winds for southern Britain.
"However it looks like southern and southeastern parts of England should be mostly dry with sunny spells.
"On Sunday much of the UK is expected to be cloudy at times with cool and showery rain but again southern and southeastern areas should have sunny spells. The winds should ease on Sunday as well."
The freak summer downpours earlier this week saw many people evacuated from homes by emergency services.
Sussex Police, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and council officers evacuated people from flooded homes in the village of Elmer, near Bognor Regis, after some homes were flooded with up to 6ft of rain.
Some 150 residents of several flooded villages in West Wales had to be rescued after a month's rain fell in 24 hours.
Wiggonholt in West Sussex received the biggest lashing with 72mm of rain in 36 hours. Its monthly average for June is 52.9mm.
The break in the weather came as three of the UK's biggest water companies announced they would lift the hosepipe ban , imposed to deal with drought, following weeks of heavy rain.
Thames Water, Anglian Water and Southern Water are removing the restrictions in place since early April.
