There has been a strong tendency in recent decades to develop real-time urban flood prediction models for early warning to the public due to a large number of worldwide urban flood occurrences and their disastrous consequences. While a significant breakthrough has been made so far, there are still some potential knowledge gaps that need further investigation. This paper presents a comprehensive review of the current state-of-the-art and future trends of real-time modelling of flood forecasting in urban drainage systems. Findings showed that the combination of various real-time sources of rainfall measurement and the inclusion of other real-time data such as soil moisture, wind flow patterns, evaporation, fluvial flow and infiltration should be more investigated in real-time flood forecasting models. Additionally, artificial intelligence is also present in most of the new real-time flood forecasting models in UDS and consequently further developments of this technique are expected to appear in future works.
