This morning residents of Wrexham were woken by loud claps of thunder, as the weather deteriorates in the area.
Along with the thunder there was a downpour of rain, and the UK lightening strike map showed several strikes nearby.
Twitter lit up around 8am with many being woken up by the intensity of the storms:

We are currently under a ‘yellow’ weather warning in the area, which means ‘be aware’. The details from the MET Office are: “Areas of heavy, thundery rain will continue to move northwards across many parts of the UK during Saturday.
“The public should be aware of the potential for localised flooding due to the intensity of the downpours although the location of the heaviest rainfall remains uncertain.”
The BBC forecast for the area states: “It will be humid with thunderstorms and locally intense downpours of rain, perhaps with hail at times.
“Drier, brighter and fresher conditions will move in from the southwest through the afternoon, with isolated heavy or thundery showers possible too.”
Tomorrow is due to be slightly brighter, however still with lots of rain around.
