Heavy and persistent rain and high winds forecast for today have prompted a weather warning for Cumbria.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning and said flooding of a few homes and businesses is likely and spray and flooding on roads would probably making journey times longer.
It added: “Rain will become heavy and persistent during the course of today, easing and clearing south-eastwards into Wednesday morning.
“Widely 30mm to 60mm of rain is expected across the warning area with locally 120mm over some high ground.”
A flood warning has been issued for Keswick Campsite – meaning flooding is expected and imminent action is required and flood alerts – meaning flooding is possible, be prepared – have been issued for the Upper River Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck and Derwentwater.
Derwentwater’s level remains high as a result of heavy rainfall over the past weekend.
Flooding is expected to affect low lying land and roads in the Seatoller, Stonethwaite, Rosthwaite, Grange-in-Borrowdale and Derwentwater shoreline areas.
High river and lake levels are possible on the River Derwent, Stonethwaite Beck, Watendlath Beck, Derwent Water and their tributaries.
A flood alert has also been issued for the rivers Brathay, Rothay and Winster.
The West Coast Mainline between Carlisle and Scotland has been closed.
Avanti, which runs the train service, said due to expected heavy rain bringing adverse weather conditions in Scotland, the line will be closed today until noon tomorrow.
As a result, there are changes to its services between Preston and Carlisle.
Avanti will be operating an amended timetable between Preston and Carlisle with an hourly service.
Journeys between these stations may be subject to further alterations as a result of the heavy rain forecast in Lancashire and Cumbria, it added.
