A MET Office yellow warning for thunderstorms has been issued for parts of North Wales today (July 9).

The warning is in place from 2pm until 11.59pm this afternoon.

In the warning, it states that thundery downpours may lead to some flooding in a few places.

Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Wrexham and Flintshire are among the regions likely to be affected.

The Met Office’s warning added: “Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely to break out this afternoon and move northwards, slowly dying out during the evening and first part of the night.

“Many places will miss these, but where they do occur, there is the chance of some localised impacts from heavy rain, as well as damage from lightning strikes.

“10-20mm of rain is possible in an hour or so, with some places potentially seeing 30mm in a few hours.”

What to expect:

  • Some flooding of a few homes and businesses is possible, leading to some damage to buildings or structures.
  • Perhaps some damage to a few buildings and structures from lightning strikes.
  • There is a good chance driving conditions will be affected by spray and standing water, leading to longer journey times by car and bus.
