An amber weather warning is in place across much of England and Wales for heavy rain and thundery downpours.
There may be some drier and brighter weather around this afternoon - more so for the north-east of England - but elsewhere it stays very changeable.
Temperatures are still on the hot side down in the south-east, elsewhere it will still be in the low twenties.
Viewers have posted dramatic pictures of the storms which ravaged the UK last night. The photos were posted on the ITV News Facebook page.
It seems thousands of people were woken up by loud claps of thunder, seemingly constant flashes of lightning and torrential rain.
Britain is set to bask in the sunshine in the next few days with health officials issuing guidance on how to stay safe in the sunshine.
