'Flooding possible' in Croydon as rain set to continue
THE Met Office has warned of possible localised flooding in Croydon this week as heavy rains and storms continue.
Although the weather is likely to stay sunny and dry for much of today (Monday), tomorrow is set to see heavy rain all day.
Croydon's rivers do not feature on the Environment Agency's flood warning list, but the Met Office said tomorrow's downpours could worsen existing conditions and cause some localised flooding.
There is a 'yellow warning' in place for the entire region from the midlands to the south coast, with the heavy and possibly thundery showers to continue all day.

"The public should be aware that, following recent heavy rainfall, further localised flooding is possible, as well as difficult driving conditions," the Met Office said.
The Environment Agency has issued flood warnings for 28 rivers in the South East, including the River Mole around Dorking and Leatherhead, the Chertsey Bourne and the River Wey around Godalming and Farnham.
Parts of Croydon generally more affected by flooding are Kenley and Purley, where the River Bourne is culverted.
