The north east experienced over a month’s rainfall in a day and a half on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) expects between 60 and 80mm of rainfall in the month of June.
However, some parts of the region were blighted by over 100mm of rain on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
Dipple, near Fochabers, was the highest recorded by SEPA at 114mm, Torwinny, near Dallas, was saturated by 111.4mm of rain and, at Pluscarden Abbey near Elgin, 109.2mm was recorded.
Many SEPA stations across Aberdeenshire, and their station in Aberdeen, measured more than 50mm of rainfall.
More rain is also forecast for today and Friday, but the Met Office estimate this won’t be as severe as Tuesday and Wednesday.
Stuart Brooks, a meteorologist based in Aberdeen, said: “It will be dry this morning and afternoon which will give the rivers time to subside.
“There is another band of rain expected later this afternoon, but that won’t produce as much rainfall [as earlier this week].
“On Friday we are looking at some scattered showers.
“These may be heavy in certain places and could cause localised flooding of some roads, but rivers should not be affected to the extent they were on Tuesday and Wednesday.”
