Na­ture show lights up skies

Macclesfield Express - - LIGHTNING SPECIAL -

FORKS of light­ning lit up the skies above Mac­cles­field in a stun­ning show of na­ture’s power.

And read­ers were quick to cap­ture the in­cred­i­ble scenes, send­ing them to our Face­book page.

There we re­ports of huge booms of thun­der across the bor­ough as hot and cold air stream col­lided hun­dreds of feet above our heads.

Read­ers Isaac Old­field, Nathan Rut­ter, Emily Rose Hud­son and Kerry Parker Thomp­son sent us these pic­tures while Claire Jones send us this in­cred­i­ble shot taken by her son Louis. But while some read­ers were kept awake by the storm on the night of Tues­day, June 7, it com­pleted passed oth­ers by.

On our Face­book page, Julie Hart posted ‘What storm?’ while Judith Yates said: “Never heard a thing”.

Weather fore­cast­ers are pre­dict­ing more wet weather for the bor­ough in the com­ing days.

Scat­tered heavy rain is ex­pected to con­tinue on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day, but it is hoped it will brighten up by the week­end.

Av­er­age tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected be­tween 14 and 17 de­grees.
