The heatwave conditions are set to come to an end this weekend with heavy rain expected and a Met Office yellow weather warning in place.

Over the last six days Wrexham has experienced hot and sunny conditions as temperatures have soared to 29C.

However that looks set to come to an end this weekend with a yellow weather warning in place across parts of England and Wales – including Wrexham – from early on Saturday to midnight on Sunday.

The Met Office warn that heavy thundery showers are expected to break out over the course of the weekend, especially on Sunday when these “could be widespread and torrential in places.” In some places up to 100mm of rain could fall

Temperatures are also set to drop to a somewhat cooler 20C.

Met Office Deputy Chief Operational Meteorologist David Oliver said: “This yellow rain warning comes as temperatures are set to dip for many areas over the weekend. A spell of rain, heavy in places perhaps with some thunder, moves in from the southwest late on Friday and into Saturday.

“This is followed up by an unsettled weekend for much of England and Wales with showers breaking out widely. Some very heavy showers or thunderstorms are on the cards, especially during Sunday. However, farther north it is set to stay mainly dry with some fine weather, although it will not be as hot as has been seen recently.”

The unsettled conditions are set to continue for much of the UK into next week, with showers or longer spells of rain set to affect many areas, although still with some drier, sunnier spells.
