While the forecast is for drier weather on Friday, the Environment Agency still has dozens of flood warnings in place across the three counties, along with a handful in Staffordshire and Warwickshire.
With river levels still rising downstream as water from this week's rain makes its way through the system, the agency says some places may not see a peak until Saturday.
Clare Dinnis, Environment Agency area director for the West Midlands, said they would closely monitor rivers over the next couple of days.
"The good news is that we're not expecting the extreme levels that we've seen particularly last year, but this is a significant flood and... some homes have already been affected."
It will be chilly but bright today with sunny spells.
There's a risk of the odd shower this afternoon, though, and it will be moderately windy. High: 6C/43F.
One or two showers might happen this evening too, but overnight things will turn drier with clear spells and a risk of fog later. Low: -2C/28F.
