A huge thunderstorm gave Trafford some magical views of how powerful nature can be.
Looking to the west we saw a great display full of colour and energy after a day that saw temperatures hovering around the 30c mark.
More storms are predicted this evening (July 25) as records could be broken as the temperature is set to rise to 97 degrees in some parts of the South East.
Here in Manchester the temperature will get to around 33c which is 91.4 in some places it could reach around 92.
During the evening it will be very warm with a maximum temperature of around 24c the storms predicted are for around 10pm onwards.
