When and where thunder and rain will replace sunshine in North Wales today

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year in Wales - with temperatures topping 22C in the shade. This morning will start off in the same vein but change is coming.

According to the Met Office most parts of North Wales should expect thunderstorms later on today with heavy downpours for some, and even potentially hail.

A yellow weather warning from midday to 10pm on Sunday reads: “Heavy showers and thunderstorms could lead to some disruption in places, especially to travel. Isolated flooding is possible.”

The rain is expected to clear by Sunday evening but it will remain cloudy, while temperatures will remain on the warm side through Sunday with highs of 22 °C.

Here we look at how the weather maps change in North Wales as the afternoon progresses.

Under the Met Office key blue ranges from 0-2mm of rainfall an hour, green is 2-4mm, yellow 4-8mm, orange 8-16mm, light red 16-32mm, and dark red is over 32mm.

As these maps show the storm will move in from the south - initially just affecting patches of the region but becoming far more widespread later on. If it proves accurate then Anglesey and Pen Llyn look the sunniest places to be today as west is best on the forecast.

Temperatures are expected to fall considerably after Sunday, predicted to be between 12-16°C on Monday and Tuesday with a high chance of rain. Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will be similar, between 11-16°C with showers also likely on Wednesday and Thursday.

The outlook from Monday to Wednesday reads: “Rain and blustery winds return from the southwest to start the new week and feeling colder than in recent days."
