The Met Office is also warning that snow could descend on the county during the weekend.
Forecaster Sarah Holland said: "There is a chance of snow before another band of rain follows on Sunday coming into the west.
"We could see an inch, which although doesn't sound a lot, is falling on already very wet ground."
