News bad-weather-wrexham

More bad weather has hit the area – which started on Thursdays night (sods law when Wrexham.com was helping turn on the town’s lights!) and continued on and off through Friday and hitting hardest overnight.

The rain forecast for this evening is pictured above, and sodden fields and rivers are set to get more water. Thankfully it is not predicted to get as bad as earlier in the year (read our special report here) nor get as bad as it is currently in southern parts of the UK. Wrexham.com will be monitoring and updating the situation as it unfolds.
