Forecasters have predicted that up to 80mm of rain could fall in some places, with a risk of localised flooding.
The Environment Agency has issued two flood alerts for the River Leen, including Day Brook, and the River Maun.
Low-lying farmland and roads near Moor Bridge at Bulwell, Southwark Street and the Day Brook confluence in Basford are at risk, the agency said.
Valley Road Playing Fields and low lying land along the Day Brook may also be affected.
Similarly, people in Mansfield, Edwinstowe, Ollerton, Whitewater Bridge, West Drayton and the Sherwood Forest Caravan Park in Clipstone should also be aware of the risk of floods.
Wind is expected to reach 60mph by the afternoon in parts of the county, while temperatures are only expected to hit a maximum of 13C across the region.
Met Office forecaster Dave Britton said the region would see "very strong and blustery winds".
"We have issued a yellow warning for the region, suggesting rain through today and into tonight.
"We are working with the Environment Agency on the risk of flooding and with this amount of rainfall we would advise people to stay in touch with the weather forecast."
Twitter users across Nottingham took to the social networking site to complain about the downpours.
The dreary weather brings the balmy, summery conditions Nottinghamshire has been experiencing to an abrupt end.
