OSWESTRIANS who were awake after dark last night were treated to a stunning display of lightning as the region welcomed storms.

A yellow weather warning is currently in place for Oswestry, as well as the majority of the UK, as thunder and lightning could be seen and heard in skies across the area on Monday night.

The Met Office has kept the yellow warning in place until Thursday, with the possibility of more stormy conditions.

Parts of north Shropshire were hit with heavy rain, while areas in Wales and other parts of the UK suffered flash flooding.

Some of those who could watch the skies light up from a safe distance last night were able to capture some spectacular images, like this one taken by Oswestry Advertizer Camera Club member, Andy Neeves.

He managed to get a great shot of multiple forks of lightning breaking through clouds in the night sky.

Up to now, although the yellow warning for thunderstorms remains in place, the Met Office is predicting that weather in Oswestry on Wednesday will be mainly hot and sunny, with little chance of rain throughout the day.

And for Thursday, similar conditions are expected with temperatures expecting to reach 25°C in the day and a chance of rain in the evening.
